Summary Liposomes have been widely explored in the drug delivery realm over the past decades. Many of the properties that made them well suited for drug delivery applications, such as the internal space to encapsulate a large payload of molecules and the inherent protection from exterior stresses, have also been exploited in various analytical techniques. Liposomes in Analytical Methodologies provides an extensive coverage of their utility, ranging from historic developments to actively researched techniques written by expert investigators. The introductory chapter serves as a primer on the fundamentals of liposomes for analytical purposes and provides an overview of various applications, while subsequent chapters provide in-depth coverage of selected areas. With techniques ranging from liposome PCR to electrophoretic separations, readers will gain an appreciation for the versatility that liposomes can add to the analytical toolbox
