Considering the limitations of well-known traditional detection techniques, innovative research studies have focused on the development of new sensors to offer label-free, highly sensitive, real-time, low-cost, and rapid detection for biomolecular interactions. In this study, we demonstrate immunoglobulin G (IgG) detection in aqueous solutions by using real-time and label-free kinetic measurements of the Interferometric Reflectance Imaging Sensor (IRIS) system. By performing kinetic characterization experiments, the sensor's performance is comprehensively evaluated and a high correlation coefficient value (>0.94) is obtained in the IgG concentration range of 1-50 mu g/mL with a low detection limit (0.25 mu g/mL or 1.67 nM). Moreover, the highly sensitive imaging system ensures accurate quantification and reliable validation of recorded binding events, offering new perspectives in terms of direct biomarker detection for clinical applications.
