The technique, which was developed by a European research team led by the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), measures intracellular heat without altering the cells’ metabolism, and more quickly and precisely than earlier methods. “A unique characteristic of our method is that it does not alter any cellular process,” said Romain Quidant, an ICFO...Read full article
