The combination of diagnosis and therapeutics into one theranostics system has attracted great interest in life science and biomedical fields. The current theranostic platform largely relies on the integration of multiple materials with different functionalities. The all-in-one approach has the risk of high complicity with reduced reproducibility. Smart design of simple molecules born with multifunctions should represent one of the future directions in theranostics. Fluorogens with aggregation… CONTINUE READING
