Bioassay Based on Photonic Crystal
Photonic crystals have wide applications not only in optoelectronic fields but also in bioassays. In this review, we summarized our work on colloidal photonic crystals as novel biomolecular supports in multiplex bioassays. Except for enhancing the fluorescence signal and encoding the biomolecular carriers in fluorphore labeled bioassays, photonic crystal can also encode suspended arrays. From the point view of practicality, the synthesis and self-assembly of monodispersed colloidal spheres for colloidal crystals is involved.
