Molecular fluorescence plays an important role in biosensing and diagnostics. However, dye molecules in conventional biochips exhibit radiation patterns such that even with high numerical aperture (NA) objectives a large fraction of the emitted photons is lost. Here, we investigate the implementation of a biosensor based on planar antennas , which change the radiation pattern of a dipole emitter and increase the photon collection efficiency by orders of magnitude without requiring high NA objectives. We focus on specific biological relevant molecules , interfaces  and bioassays to investigate the physical limit of detection down to the single-molecule level and to study the interaction of organic dyes and DNA molecules in nanostructured environments.
