Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique for the multiplex identification and/or quantification of molecular species at ultra-low levels. SERS can be carried out directly, by using encoded particles and implemented on chip.
Here, we present a small introduction of both recent advances and limitations of SERS for the ultradetection of bioanalytes for the diagnosis and prognosis of disease.
