Researchers Use Electrical Field To Remove Nanoparticles From Human Blood | IFLScience

Nanotechnology covers a huge range of disciplines, ranging from developing enhanced night vision contact lenses to building “thirsty” water filtration devices. Drug delivery systems also employ nanotechnology, such as using genetically modified algae to imprison chemotherapy drugs and send them to different parts of the body. Now, scientists have managed to use an electric field to quickly isolate these nanoparticles, allowing them to be removed from laboratory samples of human blood with ease, as reported in the journal Small.
