The use of fluorescent dyes –compounds joined by target molecules of biomedical interest- is opening new barriers in the techniques of bioimaging and biomedical data processing. A new article published in the journal Nature Protocols describes the new technology to develop a series of activable fluorophores that enable the peptide molecular labelling and improve cell-live imaging. The new study has the participation of the teams led by Rodolfo Lavilla, from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona and the Barcelona Science Park (PCB), and Marc Vendrell, from the Edinburgh Medical School (Scotland).
