Platform for Chemical and Biological Sensing by Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

BACKGROUND: Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is an optical analysis technique that can provide molecular identification and quantification by recording a spectrum that displays characteristic vibrational fingerprints of molecules or parts of molecules. SERS is potentially among the most sensitive analysis techniques with molecular identification capabilities and has the benefit of extraordinary sensitivity. In the past, however, SERS platforms have been highly technical preparations.

DESCRIPTION: Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have developed a novel SERS-based biosensing platform that addresses the challenges of employing SERS biosensors outside of the academic laboratory. This novel platform uses SERS and offers repeatability, dependability, and stability to ensure reproduceable results sample-to-sample. It is also sufficiently robust and stable to endure an adequate “shelf-life” prior to use. The platform is also user-friendly.
