Excerpt: Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, have teamed together to develop a unique imaging system capable of focusing on a single living cell. This new technology will be used in what the multidisciplinary team has termed a ?cellular observatory? to study the effects of environmental insults on live cells. The new technology combines nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology with optical microscopy to deliver information about a cells physical and chemical composition without invading or destroying the cell. This high-tech hybrid system can zero in on the very nucleus of a living cell, offering scientists fresh insights into the way cells work. And because the cells remain alive during the imaging and analysis procedures, researchers can track changes in both the.
