I'm stuck on you: Droplet-based liquid crystal (LC) chemical sensors can be immobilized on living cells. The decorated cells can report in real time on the presence of toxins in surrounding culture media. The approach provides new principles for the design of droplet-based LC sensors as well as methods for the local detection and reporting of chemical agents that are difficult to achieve in cellular environments using free-floating LC droplets.
