Nanodevices can be injected into live cells to track internal changes.

a study from researchers at the University of Bath develops injectable nanoscale tracking devices capable of monitoring the interior of mammalian cells, providing unprecedented access to the processes governing the beginning of embryonic development. The team states their trial involving one-cell mouse embryos is set to greatly innovate the biophysics underpinning intracellular behavior, proffering insights into the pathology of disease in old-age.

A minuscule part of the body possessing immense power, the intracellular forces inside our cells have been shown to control cell function, and by extension, the body’s systems. The physical forces inside a cell have been linked to the regulation of a wide variety of biological processes, including cell proliferation, the shape of the organism, tissue homeostasis as well as
