Paper Abstract

The TWIST platform is an optical evanescent wave sensor which enables a label-free immunoassay-based portable instrument. The approach is based on input grating coupler sensors serving as functionalized sensing devices. Binding of the target analyte to the receptor-coated grating is detected by wavelength interrogation in the telecom spectral range. We have demonstrated that high performance volumetric sensing can be achieved using a compact, low-cost telecom laser as light source. The system footprint including light source, detectors and digitizers is compact. The platform is amenable to multiplexed operation. We demonstrated a two-output system which enables detection of an analyte with an on-chip reference signal.
