Diagnosing Disease with Raman Spectroscopy

Published on: 

Vibrational spectroscopic techniques such as Raman spectroscopy have taken on increasingly important roles in point-of-care testing, spectral histopathology, and rapid in vivo diagnostics. Nick Stone is a Professor of Biomedical Imaging and Biosensing at the University of Exeter, and he and his group use Raman spectroscopy for measuring changes in the molecular constituents of cells and tissues as disease develops. He recently spoke to us about this work.
