Affordable high performance SERS substrates that don't sacrifice sensitivity and repeatability.

About Our Company

Diagnostic anSERS Inc. is dedicated to producing affordable ink-jet printed SERS substrates.

Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) requires two components: a Raman spectrometer and a SERS substrate. However, the sheer cost of the non-reusable SERS substrates, which are frequently manufactured in clean rooms, drastically limits its use.

Through a patent-pending ink-jet printing process, our P-SERS™ SERS substrates are a produced at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing sensitivity.

In addition to being used as a “traditional” SERS substrate (pipetted on sample), the wicking and flexible nature of our SERS sensors enable their use in swab and dipstick formats.

If you have any questions on sales, technical aspects, investment, or anything else, feel free to contact us.
