Luminescence-based biochip measurement platforms are employed in a wide range of biological applications, such as biomedical diagnostics. Based on an understanding of the anisotropic emission properties of luminescence emitters close to a dielectric interface, a simple strategy for producing a better than 25-fold enhancement of the detected luminescence is presented. This strategy is demonstrated for low cost polymer platforms compatible with mass-production
