  1. 2-Dimensional SPR Detection System Integrated with Molecular Imprinting Polymer Microarrays Using Microfluidic Technology Kuo-Hoong Lee, Yuan-Deng Su, Shean-Jen Chen and Gwo-Bin Lee Department of Engineering Science, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan 701 Abstract This study reports a novel microfluidic chip integrated with arrayed molecular imprinting polymer (MIP) films for surface plasmon resonance (SPR) phase imaging of specific bio-samples. The SPR imaging system uses a surface-sensitive optical technique to detect two-dimensional spatial phase variation caused by bio-molecules absorbed on a sensing surface composed of highly-specific MIP films. The developed system has a high resolution and a high-throughput screening capability and has been successfully applied to the analysis of multiple bio-molecules without the need for additional labeling in long-term measuring. Results Design (a) A SPR/MIP microfluidic chip comprising microchannels, micropumps/microvalves, micro-heaters and temperature sensors coupled with a 2-D SPR imaging system was developed. Micropumps were used to automate the sample injection. A micromachine-based temperature control module comprised of micro-heaters and a temperature sensor was used to maintain the temperature during measurement. (b) The temperature control system can heated up bio-samples to 37 °C within 20s and kept them at a uniform temperature.

Conclusions A novel SPR/MIP microfluidic chip integrated with arrayed MIP films for SPR phase imaging of specific bio-samples was developed. Multiple MIP films could be used for highly-sensitive, highly-specific bio-sensing. The development of the SPR/MIP microfluidic chip can be promising for nano-sensing applications and can detect bio-samples with a low molecular weight.
