Submission + - Skin-cell Gun helps heal burns in days instead of (geek.com)

4phun writes: Feb. 5, 2011 — What looks like a contraption out of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Skin-cell Gun is more like an airbrush gun that holds healthy stem cells that were donated from a burn victim’s own healthy skin. Using the device, these healthy stem cells are sprayed onto the burned area of a patient’s body and what happens next is truly amazing. Instead of a burn wound that normally takes weeks to heal, the same wound can be cured in as little as a few days.
