Paper Abstract

Micro Optical Fibre Biosensors (MOFBs) are emerging as one of the most sensitive bio-detection system technologies which do not require of labelling or amplification of the analyte. In these devices, a short region of the fibre core is exposed to the external environment so that the evanescent field can interact with biological species such as cells, proteins, and DNA. In order to increase the sensitivity and selectivity, MOFBs are often used in combination with other optical transduction mechanisms such as changes in refractive index, absorption, fluorescence and surface plasmon resonance. In this work we present the full characteristics, analysis and design of a MOFBs for Flavin and Porphyrin detection.
