Biotech's future: Faster, more sensitive imaging of live cells

Developing new drugs means researchers must observe how cells react to those drugs over extended periods of time. National Science Foundation-funded small business Phi Optics has developed an optical microscope that lets scientists do just that—study living cells in their natural environments. Catalin Chiritescu talked about how the technology works at the 2014 BIO International Convention.
