Continued miniaturization and increased sensitivity are the reasons that biosensors based on surface plasmon resonance or resonant mirror techniques are now frequently used in the characterization of biomolecular interactions (see schematic representation). The usage of these biosensors is further extended by new developments such as the formation of artificial membranes on the sensor surface.
