Caption: With size-based chromatography, a hexagonally ordered array of gold nanoparticles is fabricated onto a hybrid live cell-supported membrane and underlying substrate. Membrane components move freely through the array provided they don't exceed its physical dimensions. This reveals organizational aspects of the membrane environment unobservable by other techniques.
