A biosensor for protein detection was developed using antibody-immobilized metal mesh devices. Antihemoglobin antibodies were covalently immobilized on a metal mesh device. Extraordinary transmission with a dipped structure was observed for a metal mesh device immobilized with antihemoglobin antibodies as well as for the original metal mesh device. Hemoglobin in the mixture solution containing albumin at a hundred-fold concentration was detectable using antihemoglobin-immobilized MMDs. The detectability using the antihemoglobin-immobilized metal mesh device was similar to that of a commercially-available kit for the qualitative determination of hemoglobin.
