Treating cancer patients and developing biopharmaceutical drugs depends on making the distinction between a healthy live cell and a sickly dead cell. The state of the cell can indicate whether a cancer treatment is working or a new type of medicine is effective.

Groundbreaking research from the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign can determine the state of a cell without the limitations inherent to some current methods.
