Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) has already been successfully applied to detect protease activity in a microscope-based experiment. Here, we aimed to translate SERS-based protease activity monitoring to a cheaper, smaller and easier to use waveguide-based on-chip platform. Using nanoplasmonic slot waveguides we have for the first time detected SERS signal of a peptide substrate on a waveguide-based platform and are currently working on demonstrating SERS-based on-chip detection of protease activity.
