Analysis of complex media (e.g.—blood and seawater) is difficult because the media are composed of particles of different sizes and chemical profiles. Disclosed is a method for the detection of a constituent in a medium that enhances the molecular selectivity of a detector by separating the detector from the medium by a membrane of specified permeability. Proxy reporters are employed to enhance particle specificity. The novel combination of the invention has application to chemical detection in a broad range of fields.
