Analytical Methods Issue 8 now online!

Analytical Methods CoverThe latest issue of Analytical Methods is now available online. Take a look at our great new cover and read all about the innovative research behind it.

Stephen O’Driscoll and colleagues at the Dublin City University, Ireland, describe how we can use a simple mobile phone for environmental and diagnostic monitoring.

In their work featured in our outside front cover, they describe a phone’s camera which enables detection of fluorescence from a number of sensor spots on a disposable optical sensor chip without the need for communication with a remote server. The new method combines the functionality of the camera with the phone’s data processing and allows analysis of detected fluorescence intensity. According to the authors, mobile phones could represent an attractive technology platform for the development of portable sensors.
