Optical Reader & Particle Counter
The plasmonic nanoparticles are optically detected by measuring the weak scattering signal with proprietary dark-field micro-spectrophotometry. (Patents EP19382244, EP19382245)
Single Particle Digital Counting
As each plasmonic nanoparticle binds specifically to a biomarker of interest, by classifying and counting the different nanoparticles it is possible to quantify the amount of each biomarker immobilized on the substrate. (pending EP19382245, EP19382244)
