This paper describes the use of focused electric fields and focused optical fields for the high-resolution manipulation of single cells. A focused electric field, obtained with the use of ultramicroelectrodes (tip diameter approximately 5 μm), is used to electroporate and electrofuse individual cells selectively and with high spatial resolution. A focused optical field, in the form of an optical tweezer, is used to isolate single organelles from a cell as well as to position liposomes incorporated with receptors and transporters along the cell for the high-resolution sampling and probing of the cellular microenvironment.
