Sensors based on Lab-On-Tip (LOT) technology, where suitably designed nanostructures are integrated onto the end face of an optical fiber, are of strategic importance especially in medicine and clinical diagnostics, where minia- turization and portability are key characteristics. To improve the performance of LOT biosensors, we proposed the integration of the optical fiber with plasmonic Metasurfaces (Optical fiber meta-tip, OFMT), sensibly enhancing the light-matter interaction. Here we report on the remarkable capabilities of plasmonic OFMTs to perform label-free detection of cancer biomarkers with improved performances with respect to state-of-the-art optical fiber sensor
