“In the delicate work of bioengineering, dead cells get everywhere — and become a major nuisance.

Now, Stanford scientists have figured out how to separate the dead cells from the living, using magnetic levitation, gently pulling them away from the still-useful survivors without ripping everything apart, according to New Scientist. Magnetic levitation itself isn’t new, but learning that it can suck up dead cells is, and the scientists are eager to show how it can improve everything from cancer research to 3D-printed scaffolds…”
