The history of this laboratory can be traced back to the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry, which was established by the analytical chemist Prof. Liang Shuquan (Academician) at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1956. According to the national demand, the laboratory mainly focused on the separation and analysis of iron ore, uranium, rare elements and rare earth elements in the early stage, making important contributions to the national economy and national defense construction. In 1960-70s, research on clinical and medical related analysis began gradually. In 1987, the laboratory was renamed as the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry in Life Process. In 2004, it was evolved into the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Life Sciences. At the end of 2009, the Laboratory was upgraded to the Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Living Biosystems (ACL) of CAS. It is one of the earliest research units of analytical chemistry related to life in China.

The laboratory, always in accordance with the comprehensive construction guidelines of the Institute of Chemistry, closely combines with national needs, grasps the development trend of the discipline, and carries out forward-looking innovative research. Toward the major challenges in the chemical and life sciences, as well as major national needs, the laboratory at present focuses on the basic and applied research of analytical chemistry for in vivo analysis. By developing new principles, methods and devices of analytical chemistry, we can have a deep understanding of life processes at different levels, such as molecular, cellular and in vivo, thus benefiting human health.

The laboratory has 40 faculty members, including 13 research professors and 5 recipients of the National Science fund for distinguished young scholars. In the past five years, it has trained more than 60 doctoral students, and now has nearly 100 master and doctoral students, and more than 30 postdocs and visiting scholars. In recent years, the laboratory has received research funding from the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, CAS, and other departments. Parts of the results have been published in Nat. Nanotechnol., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Anal. Chem., Nat. Commun., Sci. Adv., Chem.Rev., Chem. Soc. Rev., Adv. Mater., Mol. Plant and other scientific journals; more than 100 patents have been authorized. Some of the research achievements of the laboratory have won different awards.

The development of the laboratory needs the continuous participation of outstanding scholars, especially young talents. We warmly welcome aspiring young people to join us and work together to build the ACL into a first-class research team with important influence and an important base for the training of outstanding talents, so as to make greater contributions to the development of science and technology in China.
