Abstract

A microinjection process is described that involves the photodynamically-assisted puncture of an animal cell membrane by means of a brief and partial degeneration resulting from cell membrane damage. The ratio of dye-injected rat pheochromocytoma cells that became detached three and six days after photodynamically-assisted microinjection was 9%; however, it was 83% when a conventional mechanical microinjection process was used.
