Abstract

: Surface Plasmon Resonance based-sensors are promising tools for precision diagnostics as they can provide tests useful for early and, whenever possible, non-invasive disease detection and monitoring. The design of novel, robust and effective interfaces enabling the sensing of a variety of molecular interactions in a highly selective and sensitive manner is a necessary step to obtain both accurate and reliable detection by SPR. This review covers the recent research efforts in this area, specifically emphasizing well-designed interfaces and applications in real-life samples. In particular, after a short introduction which identifies some of the critical challenges, the emerging strategies for the integration of the linker, the metal substrate and the recognition element on the sensing interface will be explored and discussed in three sections, as well as the opportunities for building SPR biosensors, easy to use, and with excellent sensitivities. Finally, a summary of some of the more promising and latest diagnostic applications will be provided, presenting a new window into the near-future perspectives.
