The cover depicts the dispersion and magnetic collection of nanoparticles from a sample solution (shown at a high concentration for visual clarity). The nanoparticles are dispersed into the sample, shown in the center, and then quickly capture the radionuclides in the solution on their surfaces. The nanoparticles are then collected by the magnet, shown on the far right, and the solution decanted off, enabling rapid sample preparation and analysis. Initial studies and modeling for using nanoparticles for accelerated radiobioassay are explored in the paper by O'Hara et al. on page 196.
