Our cells are invisible to the naked eye, making them a difficult field to study. Researchers have made an astounding breakthrough which will ease the jobs of cell researchers. The Nanopoint cellTRAY cell slide has an integrated bio-incubator which allows scientists to create time-lapse images of living biological cells for the first time.

"The technology is a standard microscope slide with a twist; it incorporates an incubator to sustain the life of cells encapsulated within it. The viewable area is split into 7,614 wells, containing a liquid medium. The wells are linked by a micro fluidic channel system that is able to supply nutrients, reagents and remove toxic wastes that build up."
