Issue 11 of 2011 is now available online – and work from China is highlighted on both covers.
The front cover features the work of Dianping Tang, Guonan Chen and colleagues of Fuzhou University. They report on a novel, enzyme-free amperometric immunoassay of biomarkers with sensitive enhancement which has been designed by using gold nanoflower-labeled detection antibodies.
