This work deals with a novel Lab-on-Fiber biosensor able to detect in real time thyroid carcinomas biomarkers. The device is based on a gold nanostructure supporting localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR) directly fabricated on the fiber tip by means of electron beam lithography and lift-off process. Following a suitable chemical and biological functionalization of the sensing area, human Thyroglobulin has been detected at nanomolar concentrations. Also, compatibility with full baseline restoration, achieved through biomarkers/bioreceptors dissociation, has been demonstrated.
