Ben asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi, is it possible to use quantum entanglement in making a teleportation device? 

Would this be done either by surrounding the subject to be teleported with entangled pairs or would the subject have to be made completely from entangled material to be able to be teleported? If not how would it work? 

And could a single cell of  bacteria be quantum entangled, or other biological unit?

As it is still made of atoms and molecules which theoretically could be entangled. 

What do you think?

Maybe if you made a person entirely out of entangled particles, and then somehow got the other entangled particles to arrange themselves the same way? Probably not though
