Biochips promise a range of potential applications in the life sciences: for example, the diagnosis of genetic diseases, the study of protein structure and function, and the discovery of new drugs.
These devices usually consist of an array of biosensing locations—probes deposited onto the chip's surface using specialized chemistry—that interact with biomolecular targets such as short gene sequences or protein fragments.
Many biochemical interactions can be screened in parallel and then translated into intelligible data using different techniques. One of the most common, called microarray technology, uses targets that are modified: e.
A second technique relies on surface-plasmon-resonance imaging SPRI transduction. SPR is a physical phenomenon that occurs when light is coupled to a thin layer of metal—usually silver or gold—under certain conditions specific angle of incidence, wavelength, polarization, and metal thickness.
An evanescent plasmon wave propagates along the metal-dielectric interface see Figure 1. Changes in either the refractive index or biomolecular layer thickness in the vicinity of the metallic interface can be monitored as a shift in the resonance curve. SPRI allows direct measurement of the optical constants of the dielectric layer above the metal. This gives an indirect measure of the increase in mass resulting from adsorption of biomolecular targets.
SPRI enables us to evaluate precisely, in real time, the adsorption and desorption kinetics 1 of each spot throughout the chip's surface 2D array. Moreover, additional dimensions can be exploited, such as angle of incidence, wavelength, and polarization.
Changes in the shape of biomolecules are often important in analyzing biological processes. For example, different conformations of a protein could result in different functions, or in disease. Each arm is able to retrieve real-time reflectivity data about every spot in the 2D array. We can then perform a differential measurement and extract the average anisotropy—i. With this information, we can recover shape and directional features for the biomolecular layer with known optical constantssuch as order parameters or the average orientation of the biomolecules tethered to the chip.
Determining anisotropy from two sensing arms implies that both give similar results accurately and consistently for isotropic samples.
In order to verify the stability of our setup, we conducted an experiment using a bare gold chip covered with isotropic mixtures of different refractive indexes laid down one after the other. The two cameras recorded the reflectivity information at each location on the surface during the course of the experiment see Figure 3.
We determined that the results are identical within a 3.Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging SPRinamely surface plasmon resonance microscopy SPRMis a real-time, label-free, and high-throughput technique which is used to study biomolecular interactions based on detecting the refractive index changes resulting from molecular binding.
More specifically, SPRi has been developed to examine affinity between biomolecules, screen biomarkers and detect biopsy specimens. Surface Plasmon Resonance SPR is an optical detection process that occurs when a polarized light hits a prism covered by a thin planar metal typically gold or silver layer. At certain angles of incidence, a portion of the light energy couples through the gold coating and creates a surface plasmon wave at the sample and gold surface interface.
The angle of incident light required to sustain the surface plasmon wave is very sensitive to changes in refractive index at the surface due to mass changeand it is these changes that are used to monitor the association and dissociation of biomolecules.
Kinetic characterization by Surface Plasmon Resonance and other methods has already been an important step for drug researchers to select and characterize novel therapeutics as well as for basic life scientists to investigate specific biological binding events. When combined with appropriate surface chemistry, microfluidics and software, SPRi is unmatched in its range of applications including:.

All rights reserved.Surface plasmon resonance microscopy SPRMalso called surface plasmon resonance imaging SPRI is a label free analytical tool that combines the surface plasmon resonance of metallic surfaces with imaging of the metallic surface.
SPRM measurements can be made in real-time,  such as measuring binding kinetics of membrane proteins in single cells,  or dna hybridization. Surface plasmons or surface plasmon polaritons are generated by coupling of electrical field with free electrons in a metal. As shown in Figure 2, when light passes from a medium of high refractive index to a second medium with a lower refractive index, the light is totally reflected under certain conditions. The light leaked into the medium 2 penetrates as an evanescent wave.
The intensity and penetration depth of the evanescent wave can be calculated according to Equations 2 and 3, respectively. Figure 3 shows a schematic representation of surface plasmons coupled to electron density oscillations. The light wave is trapped on the surface of the metal layer by collective coupling to the electrons of the metal surface.
When the electron's plasma and the electric field of the wave light couple their frequency oscillations they enters into resonance. Recently, the leakage light inside of the metal surface had been imaged. Two different metal surfaces were used; gold and silver. The propagation length of the SPP along the x-y plane metal plane in each metal and photon wavelength were compared.
Figure 4 shows the leakage light captured by a color CCD camera, of the green, red and blue photons in gold a and silver b films. In part c of Figure 4, the intensity of the surface plasmon polaritons with the distance is shown.

It was determined that the leakage light intensity is proportional to the intensity in the waveguide. The metallic film is capable of absorbing light due to the coherent oscillation of the conduction band electrons induced by the interaction with an electromagnetic field. A net charge difference is created in the surface of the metal film, creating a collective dipolar oscillation of electrons with the same phase.
The oscillation frequency of gold surface plasmons is found in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum, giving a red color while silver gives yellow color. In Figure 5, the size and shape of silver nanoparticles influenced the intensity of the scattered light and maximum wavelength of silver nanoparticles. Surface plasmon polaritons are quasiparticles, composed by electromagnetic waves-coupled to free electrons of the conduction band of metals.
This method is also called Kretschmann—Raether configuration, where TIR creates an evanescent wave that couples the free electrons of the metal surface. Kretschmann—Raether configuration is used to achieve resonance between light and free electrons of the metal surface.
In this configuration a prism with high refractive index is interfaced with a metal film. Light from a source propagates through the prism is made incident on the metal film. As a consequence of the TIR, some leaked through metal film, forming evanescent wave in the dielectric medium as in Figure 6.
The interaction between the light and the surface polaritons in the TIR can be explained by using the Fresnel multilayer reflection; the amplitude reflection coefficient r pmd is expressed as follows in Equation 5.
In Figure 7, a schematic representation of the Otto prism coupling prism is shown. In the Figure 7, the air gap was shown a little thick just to explain the schematic although in reality, the air gap is so thin between prism and metal layer.Imaging systems.

Rolland, "Multidimension potential of surface plasmon resonance imaging for dynamic surface characterization: application to optical biochip systems," Proc. Citation Only. RIS Zotero. Ref Works. Single Year. Clear Form.Instrumental limitations such as bulkiness and high cost prevent the fluorescence technique from becoming ubiquitous for point-of-care deoxyribonucleic acid DNA detection and other in-field molecular diagnostics applications.
The complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor CMOS technology, as benefited from process scaling, provides several advanced capabilities such as high integration density, high-resolution signal processing, and low power consumption, enabling sensitive, integrated, and low-cost fluorescence analytical platforms.
In this paper, CMOS time-resolved, contact, and multispectral imaging are reviewed. Recently reported CMOS fluorescence analysis microsystem prototypes are surveyed to highlight the present state of the art.
Deoxyribonucleic acid DNA analysis platforms are used in the life sciences for the observation, identification, and characterization of various biological systems. These platforms serve applications such as pathogen detection [ 12 ], disease screening [ 34 ], biohazard detection [ 56 ], cancer diagnostics [ 78 ], and genetic research [ 9 — 11 ].
Biosensors are a subset of such platforms that can convey biological parameters in terms of electrical signals. Biosensors measure the quantity of various biological analytes and are often required to be capable of specifically detecting multiple analytes simultaneously.
A goal in biosensor research is to develop portable, hand-held devices for point-of-care POC use, for example, in a physician's office, an ambulance, or at a hospital bedside that can provide time-critical information about a patient at the location of need [ 1 ]. The current demand for high-throughput, point-of-care bio-recognition has introduced new technical challenges for biosensor design and implementation. Conventional biological tests are highly repetitive, labor intensive, and require a large sample volume [ 912 ].
The associated biochemical protocols often require hours or days to perform at a cost of hundreds of dollars per test. Instrumentation for performing such testing today is bulky, expensive, and requires considerable power consumption. Problems remain in detecting and quantifying low levels of biological compounds reliably, conveniently, safely, and quickly.
Solving these problems require the development of new assay and sensor techniques. Well-known molecular sensing techniques include electrochemical detection [ 313 ], surface plasmon resonance [ 14 ], and fluorescence [ 245 ]. In electrochemical DNA detection, for example, a charge-transfer chemical reaction causes a change in the electrical properties of the system. Subcategories of electrochemical methods include cyclic voltammetry, constant potential amperometry, and impedance spectroscopy [ 313 ].
Detection may be label-free or requires labeling. In the label-free case, the presence of the target causes an observable signal without requiring the attachment of a label molecule to the sample [ 15 — 17 ]. To improve selectivity, labels are used to enhance the sensor response to particular targets. The electrochemical system typically involves three electrodes i. Single-stranded DNA probes are first immobilized on the electrodes and then immersed in an electrolyte solution.
Next, single-stranded DNA targets that have been labeled with an electroactive species are introduced to the electrolyte and allowed to interact with the probes. These labels are designed to transfer charge to the electrode when a potential is applied. Then, a potential is applied between the two electrodes and only labels attached to surface-hybridized targets are able to transfer charge to the electrode.
A quantitative measure of the degree of hybridization, reflecting the target concentration, is obtained by monitoring the reduction-oxidation current.
Although electrochemical techniques are capable of highly spatially multiplexed detection and often leads to simple electronic readout, it is generally more difficult to achieve combined high selectivity and high sensitivity as compared to an assay using well-chosen optical labels to interrogate specific processes [ 3513 ].Proceedings of SPIE offer access to the latest innovations in research and technology and are among the most cited references in patent literature.

The imaging capability enables users to visualize the entire working area and work in a multiplex format.
Multiplexing means that different types of ligands can be immobilized on a single SPRi-Biochip. It also enables the study of many parameters at the same time concentration, immobilization pH, etc. Our technology measures modifications of the refractive index at the surface of the SPRi-Biochip, which can be correlated to mass variations.
It can be used to detect interacting molecules in real time, to determine the analyte concentration, and the affinity of the interaction. SPRi allows the full characterization of biomolecular interactions specificity, kinetics and affinity which in turn can give information on a sample solution quantity of molecules. A vast library of samples can be analyzed. They include proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, bacteria, cells, polymers, organic small molecules, and more.
A binding event, or mass accumulation, will induce a change of refractive index and a shift of the position of the resonance angle. SPRi follows the variations of reflectivity occurring at a fixed angle working angle versus time. The principle is described in the following diagram:. Step B : When the sample solution is injected in the flow cell, molecular binding can occur.
This induces a shift of the plasmon curves and an increase of reflectivity. The kinetic curves sensorgrams show the variations of reflectivity versus time association phase. The process can also be monitored on the SPRi difference image. White spots correspond to interacting areas of the SPRi-Biochip. Step C : When the sample solution leaves the flow cell, the ligand-analyte complexes dissociate.
This induces a shift of the plasmon curves and a decrease of reflectivity. The kinetic curves show the variations of reflectivity versus time dissociation phase. The process can also be monitored on the SPRi difference image as interacting spots become darker. Step D : When all the ligand-analyte complexes are fully dissociated sometimes using a regeneration solutionthe plasmon curves and the kinetic curves return to the initial state.
