This beautiful cover to illustrate our work on Exchangeable Self-Assembled Lanthanide Antennas for PLIM Microscopy was designed by Eugenio Vazquez from Univ. Santiago de Compostela.

Our team introduces a novel aqueous-soluble lanthanide antenna (PAnt) designed for dynamic interaction with lanthanide ions, acting as an exchangeable dye in PLIM microscopy in cellulo.

The self-assembled lanthanide complex demonstrates remarkable photostability, surpassing traditional lanthanide cryptates. This marks a significant stride forward in quantitative PLIM bioimaging, offering solutions to combat photobleaching challenges.
