2.
The enzyme thermistor—A realistic biosensor concept. A critical review   Review Article

Pages 1-12
Maria Yakovleva, Sunil Bhand, Bengt Danielsson

Graphical abstract

.

Highlights

► Major principles and features of enzyme thermistor are described. ► Different types of enzyme thermistors are overviewed and compared. ► Applications of enzyme thermistor for determination of various analytes are presented. ► Advantages and drawbacks of the analytical method are highlighted.




3.

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► The use of native fluorescence detection in capillary electrophoresis is reviewed. ► Various detector designs are discussed, and their performances are evaluated. ► Specific attention is devoted to fluorescence detection in microfluidic systems. ► Applications of biomolecular and pharmaceutical compound analysis are described.


  Chemometrics


4.
Chemometrics assisted resolving of net faradaic current contribution from total current in potential step and staircase cyclic voltammetry   Original Research Article

Pages 34-46
Afsaneh Safavi, Bahram Hemmateenejad, Fatemeh Honarasa

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► A new method for treating of charging current in voltammetry has been proposed. ► Chemometrics analysis of voltammetric data revealed the presence of faradaic, step charging and induced charging currents. ► MCR-ALS analyses could separate the contribution of each current type in the total signal. ► The results were in agreement with previous theoretical models.


  Electrochemistry


5.

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► A novel enzymeless photoelectrochemical sensor for 4-nitrophenolate contained OPs. ► Sensors have performances of rapid response, good sensitivity and selectivity. ► PTCA as sensitizer can form ultrastable thin film and is economic as well. ► The strategy extends the application of PTCA for photoelectrochemical sensor.



6.
Characterisation of iron binding ligands in seawater by reverse titration   Original Research Article

Pages 53-60
Jeffrey A. Hawkes, Martha Gledhill, Douglas P. Connelly, Eric P. Achterberg

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► We have applied the reverse titration technique for analysis of Fe(III) speciation. ► The technique can be used in waters with high Fe(III). ► We examine the technique with dFOB, coastal seawater and hydrothermal plume water.


  Extraction and Sample Handling


7.
Natural deep eutectic solvents as new potential media for green technology   Original Research Article

Pages 61-68
Yuntao Dai, Jaap van Spronsen, Geert-Jan Witkamp, Robert Verpoorte, Young Hae Choi

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► Natural products were used as a source for deep eutectic solvents and ionic liquids. ► We define own chemical and physical properties of natural deep eutectic solvents. ► Interaction between natural deep eutectic solvents and solutes was confirmed by NMR. ► The developed natural deep eutectic solvents were applied as green media.



8.

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► Semiautomated approach for determination of sialic acids in different biofluids. ► Ultrasound-enhanced hydrolysis and derivatization to shorten the analysis time. ► Lab-on-valve approach for automated solid-phase extraction with high concentration and cleanup efficiency. ► Validation of the method by application to biological samples with different characteristics.


  Mass Spectrometry


9.
Coffee-ring effects in laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry   Original Research Article

Pages 77-82
Jie-Bi Hu, Yu-Chie Chen, Pawel L. Urban

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► Coffee rings occur during sample preparation for MALDI-MS and LDI-MS. ► They partly contribute to chemical heterogeneity of sample deposits. ► Coffee rings may be hidden within sample spots. ► Occurrence of coffee rings permits partial separation of sample components. ► In some cases, formation of coffee rings can be suppressed during sample preparation.

Lectin sensitized anisotropic silver nanoparticles for detection of some bacteria   Original Research Article

Pages 83-87
Vardan K. Gasparyan, Inga L. Bazukyan

Graphical abstract

A novel approach for quantitative detection of bacteria in biological fluids was developed. Lectin sensitized anisotropic silver nanoparticles are able to bind Gram positive as well as Gram negative bacterial species. In this case the spectra of nanoparticles undergo serious changes.

11.

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► The strategy was based on the coupled reaction triggered by polynucleotide kinase. ► The strategy was a colorimetric assay visible to the naked eye. ► The strategy had obvious advantages in controlling cost and simplifying operations. ► The strategy exhibited an improved signal to noise ratio and a wide linear range. ► The strategy could be extended to high-throughput phosphorylation investigations.



12.
A rapid and highly sensitive portable chemiluminescent immunosensor of carcinoembryonic antigen based on immunomagnetic separation in human serum   Original Research Article

Pages 94-99
Shuxue Qu, Juntao Liu, Jinping Luo, Yiqing Huang, Wentao Shi, Bin Wang, Xinxia Cai

Graphical abstract



Highlights

► The anti-CEA antibody can bound to the bead with a conjugation rate of 73%. ► IMBs could be stored for 2 months without reduction of biological activity. ► The limit of detection (LOD) of this method was as low as 5.0pgmL−1(S/N=3). ► The novel immunosensor was highly sensitive with an assay time of <35min. ► There was a good agreement between our method and ELISA kit. ► A home-made luminometer was used to detect the optical signal.
