ABSTRACT: We propose a novel surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor chip with a microfabricated slit array. The microslit excludes micrometre-size objects larger than its slit size from the SPR sensing area, so that it functions as an in situ filter. We demonstrated the sensing of microparticles of different diameters using the chip, and the results show a successful size-exclusion effect. As a demonstration of the biological application, we performed the detection of aggregation and disaggregation of biological particles using sugar-chain-immobilized gold nanoparticles as a test sample.
