A holy grail in point-of-care diagnostics is to develop tests that perform on par with the central laboratory in terms of robustness, multi-analyte capability, precision, and sensitivity. Oxonica has developed a series of proprietary, nanoscale optical detection tags based on surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) that meet these criteria. this presentation will describe how these novel materials are prepared, and highlight two different assay formats for point-of-care testing, describing assays for both proteins and DNA.
