Researchers Build A Laser Using Human Blood

University of Michigan researchers have developed a laser using human blood as a key ingredient. The article doesn't say how much human blood is needed so, at least for now, it would probably be a good idea to keep track of how many researchers are on the team...in case any of them mysteriously go missing. wink

University of Michigan researchers have successfully demonstrated a new technique that combines laser light with an FDA-approved fluorescent dye to monitor cell structure and activity at the molecular level. This could lead to improved clinical imaging and better monitoring of tumors and other cell structures. It could also be used during drug testing to monitor the changes that cells undergo when exposed to prospective new drugs.
