Scientists transform human cells into lasers

The last method involves using fatty droplets that “exist naturally within living cells.” Humar says that we all have fat cells inside our tissue and “we are all made of lasers. ” The first two approaches were tested on human cells, the last on pig cells. Tagging cells with fluorescent dyes is “a common and relatively easy way for researchers to label cells by getting them to emit light,” according to New Scientist. However, this process produces a range of wavelengths that make it difficult to distinguish between cells that are tagged differently. Laser light has a narrow range of wavelengths, so every cell in the human body could have a unique, identifiable signature.
