Cell-based approaches in medicine, biotechnology and in the phannaceutical research offer unique prospects to cope with future challenges in the field of public health. Stem cell research, autologous cell therapies, tissue engineering and therapeutic cloning are only a few fields that are presently much discussed in the scientific community. Progress in these fields will depend on the successful development of versatile and flexible tools for the gentle manipulation and characterisation of cells and biological particles.
