Examples of biorecognition schemes utilized in microresonator biosensing applications: (A) antibody-based detection of a cancer biomarker carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) with silicon rings in serum (adapted with permission from [85], copyright (2009) American Chemical Society), (B) detection of DNA oligonucleotides by hybridization to dextran-functionalized microspheres (reprinted from [57], copyright (2003), with permission from Elsevier), (C) breast cancer biomarker HER2 detection in LCORRs functionalized with antibody (reprinted from [42], copyright (2010), with permission from Elsevier), (D) silane-based bioconjugation techniques that have been explored for achieving high surface densities in DNA detection [86].
