Sodium Polyacrylate, a Compound in Diapers can Enlarge Brain Cells

A group of researchers of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) formed a new technique that will enlarge cells and provide high resolution images. The scientists named it as expansion microscopy. It will allow experts to effortlessly increase the size of tissue samples.

Unlike other latest scientific techniques, expansion microscopy is pretty simple and inexpensive. The scientists merely have to embed the tissue samples into a polymer with small quantity of water. The polymer will allow specimen to swell and magnify.
