Many cellular processes are localized within specific subcellular compartments; therefore, recent bioanalytical research has been aimed at utilizing the natural organization found within cells to reduce the complexity of biological samples. Subcellular compartments include (i) distinct, vesicular organelles, such as nuclei, mitochondria, and acidic organelles; (ii) indistinct, continuous organelles such as the endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, plasma membrane, and cytoskeletal network; and (iii) the cytoplasm.
