Manipulation of a cell nucleus with a nanoprobe device

We begin with a novel observation: that cell nuclei are strongly attracted to a hydrophobic probe, and then describe a use for the device, demonstrated by the transfer of a nucleus from one cell to another, and presentation of a model to describe the attachment and voltage-driven release from the probe. We believe that it complements existing techniques and can be built upon by others.

More to come once the paper comes out...
