December 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

We announce the winners of this year’s Innovation Awards, showcasing the technologies painting a bright picture of the future. We find out why forensics labs may need to clean up their act, and discover a new biomarker sensing technology in our Quick Reads. In our viewpoint pieces, our contributors play with “analytical LEGO” and ask what more could be done to boost diversity at scientific conferences. We also explore the idea of simulating gas chromatography on your laptop, and Sit Down With separation specialist and ISC Chair, Valérie Pichon.
