We report development of suspended-core silica and lead-silicate microstructured optical fibers for detection of liquids and supercontinuum generation. Theoretical analysis of effective mode area, dispersion curve, nonlinear coefficient and mode-field overlap is presented. For a specific lead-silicate fiber we determinated the zero dispersion wavelength at 1113 nm with a nonlinear coefficient of 1321 W-1km-1. For detection of liquids both silica and lead-silicate fibers are found to be suitable in different refractive index ranges 1.38-1.44 and 1.68-1.74 respectively. Coupling efficiency into all studied fibers over 40%; fiber attenuation was measured by the cut-back technique and is approximately 2 dB/m for silica glass fibers and over 3 dB/m for lead-silicate fibers.
