"Interactions of Nanomaterials with Complex Biological Systems"
Cationic liposomes are shown that can be used as universal label in bioassays. Through encapsulation of large number of fluorescent of chemiluminescent markers, their signal enhancement capability was demonstrated as secondary label in high-throughput bioassays and as generic label for bacteria cells.

This cover image (from our Spotlight) depicts a possible roadmap for the future of Analytical Chemistry. Designated as "Analytics 4.0" it will be tightly linked to developments in and future of IT technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning, connectivity, portability and be part of the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT).
