Fluorescent Nanotubes Enhance Mouse Imaging [Kurzweil AI]

So in the past we’ve learned that Carbon Nanotubes can be used to deliver drugs into the body quickly, or possibly even a targeted fashion. Now we can paint them fluorescent and inject them into the body and be able to track and image their progress with greater depth an accuracy than standard biocompatible dyes.

This means we can both deliver drugs and watch them get delivered in real-time. An amazing step in medicine.
