Application of Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) in Drug Discovery and Bio-sensors Continues to Increase

Blog Description

Surface plasmon resonance devices have become the benchmark in the field of optical sensing. SPR devices are primarily used for discovering drugs, detecting the biomarkers of diseases, analyzing chemicals, detecting pollutants present in the environment, and ensuring the quality of food. Owing to its selectivity and high specificity, SPR techniques have gained tremendous popularity among researchers. Considering all these factors, the global market for surface plasmon resonance is expected to grow rapidly during the period between 2015 and 2025. Currently, scientists are focusing on improving the compactness, sensitivity, and cost of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) devices by changing the materials that are used for making them.
