Bin Liu and co-workers report on page 500 a fluorescence-amplified far-red/near-infrared (FR/NIR) probe by co-encapsulation of a conjugated polymer donor and a fluorogen acceptor with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics into biocompatible bovine serum albumin (BSA) matrix. These probes allow for targeted in vitro and in vivo cancer imaging with high contrast and in a selective manner.
