The paper shows the different methods to attach a molecule to detect streptavidin to a dielectric particle made of a rare-earth oxide core and a polysiloxane shell containing fluorescein. First, the detection of streptavidin binding on a biotinylated gold substrate can be achieved in three ways: the shift of the surface plasmon resonance of the substrate(More)
The paper shows how polysiloxane particles encapsulating fluorophores can be successfully used to detect biotin-streptavidin binding by two types of technique. After functionalization of the particles by streptavidin, the fixation of the biomolecule can indeed be detected by a shift of the localized surface plasmon resonance of the biotinylated gold dots(More)
Au and Ag biochips were fabricated to investigate the influence of pH upon the chemiluminescence (CL) of luminol at vicinity of surface-adsorbed peroxidase. A nanoscaled-corrugation of the metal induces an enhancement of the luminol CL which is maximal in the pH range favoring peroxidase catalysis and greater for gold than for silver. This is the proof(More)
