Plasmetrix Surface Plasmon Resonance devices:
Compact Optical Research Instruments “CORGI“
An affordable and versatile system for education and research.
CORgI device configuration can be adapted to meet individual customer requirements.
Fluidics is easily accessible, interchangeable and include single or double channel flow-injection cell, open cuvette with option of electrochemical analysis and conventional petri dish for SPR biosensing directly in the cellular environment.
The SPR chip is a glass slide with a thin layer of gold deposited on one side. Optical contact is assured by using matching oil. Application of home-made or commercial sensing chips can be considered. The coupling prism and fluidics are easily separated to facilitate cleaning and SPR chip installation.
SPR resolution is up to 1* 10-6 RIU.
The compact CORGI device size (150x50x32mm) and possibility to work with conventional petri dishes allows performing live cells SPR analysis directly in the incubator or under an imaging microscope. On request, CORgI device can be adapted to portable cellular incubator.

SPR sensor chips
Sensor chips are traditional glass slides with a 45-50 nm gold thin film deposited onto an adhesion layer. A drop of matching oil serves for optical coupling of sensor chip to the prism.
To facilitate SPR chip installation, a holder for the standard size of 12x10mm or 12x7mm is available and can be adapted to customer requirements.
Plasmetrix specializes in compact and portable plasmonic devices at affordable prices for research and education. Measuring only 15cm in length, our tiny CORGI SPR system packs a lot of options and has been specifically designed to adapt to numerous laboratory and academic uses. The basic device can be ordered with add-on configurations, such as single or double channel flow-injection cell, open cuvette with option of electrochemical-SPR analysis, or conventional petri-dish for SPR sensing directly in a cellular environment. Its versatility and ease of use make it the perfect laboratory tool: the coupling prism and fluidics are easily accessible and interchangeable, and the sensing chips are conventional thin gold layers that can be either home-made or bought. Reaching a resolution of 10-6 RIU, this device shows great performances for all typical SPR monitoring applications – binding affinities, kinetics, and biosensing.
