Webinar – Resonance Raman spectroscopy for redox biology research
Resonance Raman (RR) spectroscopy is the ideal tool for redox biology research. Not only does it demonstrate high sensitivity to haem proteins, it can also elucidate their oxidation and oxygenation states in situ (solution, organelles, cells and tissues). RR imaging provides both chemical and spatial information, enabling correlations between haem protein distribution, oxidation state, and protein/cell function to be made.

Application note: Redox biology with the inVia confocal Raman microscope
Raman spectroscopy is sensitive to the presence of haem proteins and is ideal for studying their redox biology, without the need for isolation or staining. The redox of haem proteins is closely linked to their protein functions – oxygen transport and storage, electron transport, and scavenging of free radicals. By using Raman spectroscopy to elucidate redox states within biological systems, researchers can study redox dynamics and its effects on health regulation and diseases.
Application note: Raman imaging for biological applications. No stains. No labels.
Raman spectroscopy is an information-rich, label-free, non-invasive imaging technique that is ideal for life sciences research. It uses laser light scattering to provide a chemical fingerprint at each point of the analysed area and identifies the molecules present in samples.
