The European Space Agency brings infrared spectrometry to new heights.

Columnist Bob McDowall proposes an integrated approach to the combined issue of equipment qualification and computerized system validation for spectrometers that combines the qualification, day-to-day calibration, and maintenance of the instrument with the validation of the software for a system?s intended purpose.

November 2006. Raman spectroscopy is a promising new tool for noninvasive, real-time diagnosis of tissue abnormalities. Here, we show evidence of its application for cancer diagnosis in four distinct tissue types: skin, breast, gastrointestinal tract, and cervix. Multivariate statistical analysis and discrimination algorithms allow for automated classification of the spectra into clinically relevant pathological categories using histology as a gold standard. Although limitations exist, the technique shows every indication of being an exciting prospect in the management of cancer in a clinical setting.
