Abstract

An on/off SERS aggregation system has been designed to investigate carbohydrate-lectin interactions. Detection of the lectin ConA was achieved at pico molar levels. Discrimination was also demonstrated between two different carbohydrate moieties demonstrating the specific interaction between the carbohydrate and specific protein present.
