Vertical nanotubes connected by a subsurface nanochannel

We have built an array of vertical nanotubes connected by a subsurface nanofluidic channel. The nanotube system is to be used for cell injections. By culturing cells on top of the nanotubes the cells will be pierced and molecules can enter the cells via the subsurface channel. Several channels can be made on the same sample and different molecules can be injected into different subpopulations of cells. The advantages of our system over similar injection devices include spatial and temporal resolution as well as an increased choice of injected molecules.
