University develops miracle device that can heal organs and tissue in a ‘fraction of a second’

2 min read

Ohio State University has developed a breakthrough technology called tissue nanotransfection, also called TNT, that allows for the healing of damaged tissue as quickly as a “fraction of a second,” according to researchers.

USA Today reported Monday the process starts with a silicone chip no bigger than a dime that is placed on the surface of the skin of a living body. A strong electric field is then applied across the device, which then delivers genes to the skin cells beneath it, morphing them into different kinds of cells.

This has the potential to be used by anyone such as emergency service members, or soldiers in the field, the paper said.

“This technology does not require a laboratory or hospital and can actually be executed in the field,” Chandan Sen, director of the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies, told USA Today. “It’s less than 100 grams to carry and will have a long shelf life.”

The Guardian said that, according to researchers, this turns the patients’ skin into a “bioreactor,” allowing it to repair damaged tissue in the applied area or at another site on the body.

“By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced,” Sen, who co-led the study, told The Guardian. “We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining.”
