SERRS has been used for the first time for the measurement of C-reactive protein (CRP) in an immunoassay. CRP, a biological marker for the diagnosis of infection and inflammation, is quantified in an ELISA using conventional reagents, but the usual colorimetric detection step is replaced by SERRS detection, offering improved sensitivity and potential for multiplexing analysis.
