Article title: Rapid measurement of cardiac neuropeptide dynamics by capacitive immunoprobe in the porcine heart

Authors: Nicholas Kluge, Michael Joseph Dacey, Joseph Hadaya, Kalyanam Shivkumar, Shyue-An Chan, Jeffrey Laurence Ardell, Corey Smith

From the authors: “Current methodologies for the measure of [neuropeptide Y] are not capable of providing rapid readouts on a single-sample basis. Here we provide the first in vivo methodology to report dynamic, localized [neuropeptide Y] levels within both myocardium and vascular compartments in a beating heart.”

This study is highlighted as one of December’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
