Phase sensitive SPR
Our innovative technology allows us to measure the phase of the signals, while keeping a compact and integrated device. Compared to intensity measurement alone, phase measurement provides greater sensitivity and stability.
Sensograms & angular variation
The device has 2 independent optical channels with an integrated angular scanning device. The plasmon resonance can be tracked as a function of time (sensograms) and as a function of the incident angle.
Embedded signals control
The modulation is controlled by an on-board electronic system, based on a high performance STM32 microcontroller. Signals are converted to RIU (Refractive Index Unit) response for easy interpretation by the user.

PhaseLab and Institut Pasteur collaborated on the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus by SPR during the COVID-19 pandemic. With Thierry Rose, research director at the Institut Pasteur's Diagnostic Test Development and Innovation Platform, we are continuing this collaboration on viral detection and developing the use of IPSO in epidemiological surveillance projects.
Kimialys (Claude Nogues, Cyril Gilbert) is the reference partner of PhaseLab Instrument for innovative surface chemistry. With its partners CHRU Nancy and LRGP, Kimialys and Phaselab Instrument are part of the 2021 winners of the French government's "Biomedicine" call for projects for the quality control of cells bioproduction.
PhaseLab is cooperating with Prof. Sabine Szunerits from the IEMN of the University of Lille in the development of a solution for the local and rapid detection of the grapevine fanleaf virus, in collaboration with the Institute of Plant Molecular Biology (IBMP, Strasbourg), by combining PhaseLab's compact SPR solution and the surface chemistry developed by the IEMN.
Phaselab works closely with its foundational partner Plasmonictron (Dr Tzu-Heng Hu, Pr Chii-Wann Lin). Working closely with groups at National Taiwan University (NTU), Plasmonictron produces SPR diagnostic tools and is an expert in the design of specific molecular functionalizations for the detection of proteins or viruses, using DNA engineering.
The University of Technology of Troyes (UTT) is a foundational partner of Phaselab Instrument and collaborates with Phaselab on several research projects, in particular on a project of extra-sensitive detection of pesticides in water, using DNA probes (Pr Julien Proust) and also collaborated within the framework of the DRD19 project on decentralized detection of Covid-19.
PhaseLab Instrument story...
PhaseLab Instrument was co-founded in August 2018 by a team of French-Taiwanese researchers, in collaboration with the University of Technology of Troyes and two researchers from the National Taiwan University.
This team combines expertise in nano-optics and bio-engineering and has developed a portfolio of patented innovations in the field of interferometry and SPR sensing.
PhaseLab Instrument currently takes advantage of its proprietary optical phase modulation technique to propose precise, compact and accessible instruments to the markets of SPR biosensors and thin films measurement.
The researchers co-founders of PhaseLab Instrument SAS and Plasmonictron Inc. have been working together for several years in the field of integrated sensors to combine their skills in nano-optics, biology and biomedical engineering. Part of this research is conducted in connection with research teams from French and Taiwanese universities (UTT and NTU), as well as NTU's hospital. Our two young companies, founded in 2018 and 2019 respectively, are using their complementary skills to design performant, compact and affordable innovative solutions.
