Featured article: Bioluminescent magnetic nanoparticles as potential imaging agents for mammalian spermatozoa

Current quantum-dot bioimaging techniques rely on cytotoxic cadmium compounds, and are of limited use in vivo. In this paper, Vasquez et al. demonstrate a new technique for non-toxic labelling of spermatozoa with bioluminescent composites containing iron nanoparticles and firefly luciferase. The magnetic properties may allow in vivo manipulation of cells.
