Combining Raman microscopy with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to study inorganic and mineral samples at the Geological Institute of Romania, Bucharest
The Geological Institute of Romania, located in Bucharest, was founded in 1906. It is famous for its museum which hosts a collection of more than 80,000 samples of rocks, fossils and minerals from all over Romania. They combine Raman microscopy with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to study inorganic and mineral samples.

The Guangdong Medical University in China develops a method for non-invasive prostate cancer screening using Renishaw's inVia™ confocal Raman microscope
New research at the Guangdong Medical University suggests a laser-based approach could be the latest breakthrough in prostate cancer detection. The proposed non-invasive blood test uses a combination of two techniques: surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and a new mathematical analysis technique called support vector machine (SVM).

inVia used to study blood stored in plastic blood bags
The Michael Smith Laboratories at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, is leading the way in the use of Raman spectroscopy as a tool for monitoring biochemical changes and inter-donor variability in stored red blood cell (RBC) units1,2. The research group of Professors Michael Blades and Robin Turner recently published this work in the Analyst.
Raman spectroscopy used to detect radiation damage in cells and tissues during cancer treatment
The Irving K Barber School of Arts and Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Canada, hosts a multidisciplinary group of physics, engineering and radiation oncology scientists. It is interested in detecting and understanding the damage in cells and tissues caused by ionizing radiation used in cancer treatments.
