Tissue nanotransfection used to study exosomal cross talk between cells in wound healing new study reveals

Tissue nanotransfection, or TNT technology, is known for its ability to reprogram tissue within the body. Previous studies have used this technology to grow blood vessels and nerve cells in the skin. For these studies, no stem cell injection is needed, and the procedure is completed in minutes. TNT technology does not require elaborate laboratory facilities and can be performed at the point of care in a field setting. A specialized silicon-based chip and genetic cargo can also be delivered depending on the need. Taken together, these often weigh less than 5 grams and gene transfer is achieved using a standard power supply.
