Researchers have developed a chip that is said to regenerate any cell type that is needed by the body.

According to researchers from the Ohio State University’s College of Engineering and Wexner Medical Center, the smartchip is referred to as Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT). This device generates any cell type that’s required for treatment within a patient’s body. This actually requires transforming the original cells into the building blocks necessary to do everything from repair injuries to restore the function of aging tissues,

L. James Lee, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, had this to day to Digital Trends. “Our TNT biochip is able to deliver large biomolecules, such as DNA and other genes, into the cells on the surface of a tissue or organ using a minimal invasive approach to achieve high dosage and minimal tissue or organ damage, not achievable by any existing technologies,”

“We found that the cell transfection effect may propagate quickly from surface cells to reach all cells in skin and muscle, leading to the formation of new blood vesicles and ‘difficult to reproduce cells,’ such as neurons in situ.”
