Rick Whitcomb, BiOptix's CEO, explains that the company sees opportunity in the label-free marketplace, which is looking for a high-performance surface plasmon resonance (SPR) instrument at a "reasonable price." SPR measures refractive index changes in a sensor chip's gold surface due to a change in mass that occurs during a binding event.

The company has developed and patented a novel, ultra-sensitive detection platform known as Enhanced Surface Plasmon Resonance (ESPR), which pairs the high sensitivity of SPR with the high stability and lower noise of common-path interferometry.
