Compact multi-channel surface plasmon resonance sensor for real-time multi-analyte biosensing

Compact multi-channel surface plasmon resonance sensor for real-time multi-analyte biosensing

Optics Express 23(16): 20540-8

A compact multi-channel surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor is demonstrated based on a tablet as the measurement platform. The SPR biosensor employs a bundle of fiber-optic SPR sensors as the multiplexed sensing elements that are illuminated by a light-emitting diode (LED) plane light source and detected by a cordless camera. The multi-channel SPR biosensor was based on optical fiber components for precise, label-free and high-throughput detection without the use of complex, specialized or fragile instrumentation that would require optical calibration. The reference and control channels compensated for the fluctuation of the LED light source and the bulk refractive index, increasing the accuracy and reliability of the biosensor. The multi-channel SPR biosensor was applied for multi-analyte biosensing of immunoglobulin G (IgG) and concanavalin A (Con A). The channels functionalized with staphylococcal protein A (SPA) and ribonuclease B (RNase B) only showed relative intensity responses to their corresponding analytes. Moreover, the multi-channel SPR sensors responded to the specific detection of IgG and Con A with an approximately linear relative intensity response to the analyte concentration. Hence, multiple analytes were simultaneously and quantitatively detected with the multi-channel SPR biosensor. This compact, cost-effective multi-channel SPR biosensor is adapted for point-of-care tests, which are important in healthcare and environmental monitoring and for biomolecular interaction analysis.
