This highly selective characteristic allowed the study of cells both on the surface of the skin and into deeper tissue.. According to the researchers femtosecond lasers become become important tools in biological studies because of concern the ability to strongly localized tissue. The laser protection in the research, in the August issue of the Optical Society open-access journal Biomedical Optics Express, at a wavelength of 800 nm, described the operation easier affected melanocytes and surrounding tissues.
Melanocytes are the cells of skin pigment, they are descendants has of a specific type of stem cell, the regenerative potential and other properties similar to some cancer cells.. Source The Office of Senator Frank R.brate biology research benefits from Cellular laser microsurgerywith an ultrafast femtosecond laser, researchers at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, to characterize were able to draw on patterns, and remove individual melanocytes cells from a species of frog tadpoles without damage to surrounding cells and tissues.
