Technical Abstract: This chapter describes recent advances in the use of surface-enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) as a readout tool for chip-scale, sandwich-based immunoassays. It reviews progress made in developing SERS-based immunoassays for a wide range of biolytes, including proteins, viruses and bacteria. The studies reviewed herein demonstrate that SERS-based immunoassay have the potential to serve as the cornerstone for a highly sensitive, high throughput bioanalytical methodology.
