Inside Cover: Imaging of Latent Fingerprints through the Detection of Drugs and Metabolites (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 52/2008)
An exceptionally versatile antibody–magnetic-particle conjugate platform combines the properties of magnetic powders with those of antibody recognition for the detection of drugs and drug metabolites within latent fingerprints. In their Communication on page 10167 ff., D. A. Russell and co-workers report how high-definition fluorescence images of fingerprint patterns and chemical information regarding drug usage for a range of drugs or drug metabolites can be obtained by using these particles.
