New adjustments to luminescent probes made with lanthanide elements make it possible for the probes to detect two analytes in parallel. The work that led to that advance, presented on Sunday in the Division of Organic Chemistry at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego, could also pave the way for regular use of lanthanide probes for imaging in live animals.

Probes featuring the lanthanides europium and terbium are already a fixture in . . .
