Immunological separation and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy have been integrated to provide a high-throughput procedure for detecting melamine in milk.

Commonly used substrates for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) function only at specific excitation wavelengths; which means different substrates for different tasks. consumes more biological/chemical materials, substrates, and measurement time. An ultrabroadband super-absorbing metasurface has been developed by researchers in China and the US. The system works as a universal SERS substrate for low cost and high performance sensing with much lower consumption of SERS substrates as well as cutting...

The successful positioning of an individual plasmonic nanoparticle on a commercial atomic force microscope tip by dielectrophoresis for tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy has been demonstrated.
