Crooks Group Honored with Cover of New ACS Journal

ACS Sensors 1(1) cover imageThe first edition of a new technical journal, ACS Sensors, was published this week featuring a publication from Prof. Crooks's group and cover art by graduate student Josephine Cunningham.

The cover image features a blueprint of a paper-based sensor for detection of proteins using a detection strategy based on galvanic exchange, based on the publication in that issue "Paper-Based Sensor for Electrochemical Detection of Silver Nanoparticle Labels by Galvanic Exchange" (DOI: 10.1021/acssensors.5b00051). The platform and know-how for these types of paper-fluidic sensors have been the subject of intensive research and development in the Crooks lab over the past several years, which has generated a growing portfolio of patents and publications, as well as applications to sensing of a huge variety of targets such as disease markers, biological/chemical weapons, and hormones.

The new journal, ACS Sensors, promises to be an American Chemical Society journal dedicated to all aspects of chemical and biological sensors. The editors intend to publish peer-reviewed research articles, reviews, and opinion pieces regarding conceptual and applied advances in sensing and to represent both academic and commercial sectors.
