This paper evaluates various strategies proposed for single cell refractometry and spectroscopy using fiber optic sensors and microfluidic chips. Details concerning design, fabrication and characterization of the chips will be addressed. Preliminary results obtained with alternative on-chip configurations using combination of fiber Bragg gratings with mirrored single mode and multimode fibers will be presented indicating the possibility of performing simultaneous assessment of cellular refractive index and absorption properties.
