Plasmonic Lab on a Chip for Diagnostics

Romain Quidant, Professor, Institute of Photonic Sciences

Optical biosensing based on gold nanoparticles supporting localized surface plasmoncs (LSPR) potentially offers great opportunities for compact, sensitive and low cost diagnostic devices. While last two decades have witnessed a diversity of nanoplasmonic systems with outstanding sensitivity, the implementation of LSPR sensing into a real analytical device is only at its infancy. In this context, we present here our latest advances in the optical, label free detection of biomolecules based on gold nanoantennas integrated into a state-of-the-art microfluidic platform. We first demonstrate the capability of our platform to detect low concentrations (<1ng/ml) of protein cancer markers in human serum with low unspecific binding and high repeatability. In a second step we present a novel design that enables to simultaneously determine the absolute concentration of four different target molecules from an unknown sample. The system is validated on multiple protein targets and we discuss its application to the detection of other targets, including DNA and exosomes. Our research demonstrates the high potential of gold nanoparticles for the detection of different biomarkers in real biological samples and thus gets us closer to future LSPR-based point-of-care devices.
