Researchers at UC Irvine have figured out how to use a dielectrophoresis machine to sort stem cells with electricity, says Brandon Keim at Wired. The technique might prove useful for scientists to more precisely localize a specific stem cell variety. The authors recently published their work in Stem Cells, and while it's not as flashy as other recent papers, "it's precisely these types of advances that lay the foundations for breakthroughs," Keim writes.
