We aim to create a low-cost, high-sensitivity hand-held plasmonic biosensor capable of sensing biotoxins. We will do this by using newly developed biodesign technology to create a new class of proteins which have an orders-of-magnitude increase in SPR signal-to-noise. These will be incorporated into a novel SPR device in which the transmission of light is affected by the binding of a particular toxin to the functionalized surface. Such a system will be inherently more robust and compact because all the optical components are in line with each other. These will be used in a transmission based"tricorder"device with an easily replicable disposable sensing chip.
