  • Quantitative polymerase chain reaction allows the real-time detection of nucleic acids in human samples, representing a gold standard for infection detection, but it cannot be easily converted into a point-of-care approach. Here a strategy is proposed to leverage plasmonic polymerase chain reaction to achieve multiplexed, fluorescence detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA from human saliva and nasal specimen, showing promise as a point-of-care approach.

  • Perovskite quantum dots have been proven promising for photonic and optoelectronic applications, particularly, as bright and narrow band emitters for display technology. Despite the advantageous properties, the stability issues have to be resolved to unleash the full industrial potential of perovskite quantum dots in display technology.

  • While neutrophils are the first line of defence against infections and inflammation, their unrestricted recruitment and constant activation might result in prolonged inflammation and sharpening of specific pathological conditions. Here the authors develop a strategy to specifically target activated, pro-inflammatory neutrophils and neutrophil–platelet complexes to deliver therapeutics in the context of a murine model of venous thrombosis.
