The cytokine interleukin 6 (IL-6) is involved in the pathogenesis of different inflammatory diseases, including cancer, and its monitoring could help diagnosis, prognosis of relapse-free survival and recurrence. Here, we report an innovative microfluidic approach that uses the fluidization of magnetic beads to specifically extract, preconcentrate a...

Improvements to battery performance, reliability and lifetime are essential to meet the expansive demands for energy storage. As part of this, continuous monitoring of the dynamic chemistry inside cells offers an exciting path to minimizing parasitic reactions and maximizing sustainability. Building upon recent fibre-optic/battery innovations, we r...
Understanding the conditions of habitability and searching for evidence of life beyond Earth are key scientific goals of recent planetary exploration missions on Mars, such as the Mars 2020 and the ExoMars missions. These missions will characterise past aqueous environments of the planet and seek for potential biosignatures using planetary rovers c...

Carbon is a popular electrode material for neurotransmitter detection due to its good electrochemical properties, high biocompatibility, and inert chemistry. Traditional carbon electrodes, such as carbon fibers, have smooth surfaces and fixed shapes. However, newer studies customize the shape and nanostructure the surface to enhance electrochemistr...

Research data is an essential part of research and almost every publication in chemistry. The data itself can be valuable for reuse if sustainably deposited, annotated and archived. Thus, it is important to publish data following the FAIR principles, to make it findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable not only for humans but also in machine...

210Po is a radioactive component of conventional cigarette tobacco smoke and is a recognized carcinogen. Despite the expanding market of heated tobacco products, no data are available on the activity of 210Po in the smoke of IQOS Heets cigarette. We determined the 210Po activity in the mainstream smoke of thirteen cigarette brands available on the ...

Uranium is chemo- and radiotoxic element which can cause multifactorial health hazards. Natural and anthropogenic uranium contamination raises concerns about potential public health problems. Natural contamination plays a significant role with regard to uranium exposure in the general population, whereas anthropogenic contamination leads to occupat...

Long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) play a crucial role in preventing malaria transmission. LLINs should remain effective for at least three years, even after repeated washings. Currently, monitoring insecticides in LLINs is cumbersome, costly, and requires specialized equipment and hazardous solvents. Our aim was to develop a simple, hig...

Single-particle tracking is a powerful approach to study the motion of individual molecules and particles. It can uncover heterogeneities that are invisible to ensemble techniques, which places it uniquely among techniques to study mass transport. Analysis of the trajectories obtained with single-particle tracking in inorganic porous hosts is often...
