Abstract

Surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) is an analytical technique with several advantages over competitive techniques in terms of improved sensitivity and selectivity. We have made great progress in the development of SERRS as a quantitative analytical method, in particular for the detection of DNA. However, one of the main advantages over fluorescence and other optical detection techniques is the ability to multiplex.
