Our novel proof-of-concept centrifugal microfluidics sensing platform (Fig.1), allows to perform fast and facile purification (nanofiltration) of the complex sample by incorporating inertial (centrifugal) and capillary forces. Furthermore, integrated in the platform, highly uniform Au capped Si nanopillar (NP) substrates for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) are capable to detect analyte molecules in trace amounts [1]. However, in most of the cases SERS based sensing applications are accompanied with complicated sample manipulation and external purification steps. This can be addressed to various experimental difficulties of SERS based measurements when handling real-life complex samples. Therefore, we believe that combination with the nanofiltration technique would sufficiently increase sensitivity and applicability of SERS based sensors. In addition to that, the nanofiltration of the sample and SERS based sensing of analyte is carried out on the same chip (Au NP surface) which provides robustness to the platform.
