Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging (SPRi) is a label free surface–sensitive optical detection method for biomolecular interactions in real time with high throughput. Serum biomarkers for neurological disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer are often in low abundance in bodily fluids presenting many challenges for their detection. The availability of an ultrasensitive detection platform that can profile multiple biomarkers simultaneously is a potentially powerful method for the diagnosis of diseases and monitoring of subsequent therapeutic treatments. In the present work, a technology platform is introduced that integrates SPRi with nanomaterials and microwave-assisted surface functionalization. This unique combination and integration makes it possible for the SPRi biosensor to detect a wide range of biomarkers from large proteins to small molecules at ultrasensitive level. The preliminary results are encouraging and show promise in extending the platform to detect an array of biomarkers in complex biological fluids. Key Learning Objectives:
