Raman spectroscopy for oncology research (and drug delivery research)

March 2014

Raman microscopy is routinely used for characterisation and identification of material, but the need for this molecular imaging and analysis technique has become increasingly important in biology.

Renishaw Inc (USA) recently contributed to a webinar about Raman spectroscopy for oncology research (and drug delivery research). This proved very popular, with attendees learning about:

  • a Raman technique used to identify cancer cells from healthy cells
  • a Raman technique used to analyse lipid based drug discovery
  • set up of an experiment using label-free detection (no fluorescent dyes, colorimetric stains or labelled antibodies needed)

The webinar is available to view on Lab Manager's website.
