Researchers at our Chemistry and Biology of Metals Laboratory have developed a selective probe inspired by a protein selectively carrying Cu+ in bacteria. This probe, made luminescent by a grafted terbium complex, is very sensitive and perfectly Cu+ selective by not responding to any other physiological ion.
