L ocalized perturbation of processes that take place inside the living cell depends on molecular and spatial discrimination on a micrometre scale. Here we report the use of multiple laminar streams in a microfluidic channel to deliver membrane-permeable molecules to selected subcellular microdomains. This technique opens up avenues for non-invasively visualizing, probing and manipulating the cellular metabolic and structural machinery. We have applied this method (called 'partial treatment of… CONTINUE READING
