A recent experiment successfully implanted chips into living cells.

In a recent experiment in Spain, scientists successfully embedded silicon chips in living cells. The research is initially focused on intracellular sensing and applications for medical monitoring.

Medgadget reports on the experiment:

The team fabricated different batches of polysilicon chips and then chose the most suitable device type with lateral dimensions of 1.5-3μm and with a thickness of 0.5 μm to be placed inside living cells. Cells were taken from Dictyostelium discoideum and human HeLa cells.
