25 February 2010 Guided-mode resonance sensor system for early detection of ovarian cancer
Author Affiliations +
A high-accuracy sensor system has been developed that provides near-instantaneous detection of biomarker proteins as indicators of ovarian serous papillary carcinoma. Based upon photonic guided-mode resonance technology, these highresolution sensors employ multiple resonance peaks to rapidly test for relevant proteins in complex biological samples. This label-free sensor approach requires minimal sample processing and has the capability to measure multiple agents simultaneously and in real time. A detection system has been developed and performance characterized. Identification and quantification of protein biomarkers that are up- or downregulated in blood and serum as indicators of ovarian cancer will be presented.
