Here we present a new method to monitor fluoride transmembrane transport into liposomes using a europium(III) complex. We take advantage of the long emission lifetime of this probe to measure the transport activity of a fluorescent transporter. The high sensitivity, selectivity, and versatility of the assay allowed us to study different types of fluoride transporters and unravel their mechanisms of action.
