 Abstract: A new mechanism has been discovered that completely arrests nucleation growth and eliminates associated shock wave damage to adjacent tissue with effectively no scar tissue formation. The ablation process selectively excites water to act as the propellant driving the ablation process effectively faster than even collisional energy transfer/fragmentation to the constituent proteins. This process has been found to provide intact molecular signatures for in situ biodiagnostics. Both surgery at the single cell level without scar tissue formation and near attomolar protein detection without labelling has been achieved.
