A highly sensitive nanoplasmonic biosensor for drug allergy diagnosis

The new technique is a non-invasive procedure to detect the severity of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin. The developed biosensor platform is based on gold nanodisks, is very sensitive and works label-free, detecting the changes in the refraction index occurring at its surface after the binding of IgEs specific for amoxicillin.
