For the first time, optical photothermal IR was used to study malignant and non-malignant lung cells. Glass substrates were used without blocking mid-IR spectra, and >90% accuracy for cell classification was achieved.
Optical Photothermal IR is a breakthrough technique that’s opening up new possibilities in life science and biological research.
This year there have already been three scientific publications featuring the breakthough techniques of O-PTIR and IR + Raman.
A scientific paper has been published using O-PTIR in Alzheimer’s Disease research, to study amyloid protein aggregation directly in neurons.
With Renishaw’s new Correlate software module, you can combine results from various microscopy techniques for more powerful data.
