January 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to the January issue, where ten experts share their top paper picks from 2017 in our Landmark Literature feature. In Upfront we’re measuring lion whiskers, sniffing out Parkinson’s and flushing water-dispersible pregnancy tests – and asking if Raman could be the key to resisting (cardiac) arrest. We talk to Humanity in Science Award winner about the Minilab, and My View gives us a preview of key topics at this year’s HPLC conference. Finally, Chris Elliott talks to us about fighting food fraud and the future of food analysis.
