20 May WEBINAR | Sub-cellular resolution simultaneous IR+Raman (O-PTIR) imaging for biomedical applications
Groot-Ammers | May 20th, 2021
Early diagnosis of cancers, like ovarian cancer, is essential for improving survival. To automate the process of disease diagnosis, we perform MIRSI imaging followed by machine learning. However, this requires data of high signal-to-noise ratio and resolution. During this webinar, Photothermal Spectroscopy use O-PTIR with an order of magnitude higher resolution relative to FT-IR imaging and present histopathology results for ovarian tissue.

Additionally, bone disorders such as osteosclerosis and collagen deposition have spectroscopic signatures that can also be identified using MIRSI. We present high-resolution O-PTIR imaging data and results from studies of challenging clinical bone samples. Assistant Prof Rohith Reddy (Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Houston), will discuss how the combination of biochemically relevant molecular information along with morphology makes Mid-Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging (MIRSI) especially useful in medical applications such as cancer research.
In conjunction with Dr. Mustafa Kansiz, Director of Product Management and Marketing at PSC, who will present an overview of the technique, including simultaneous sub-micron IR+Raman microscopy with further life science research examples (live cell imaging, single cell bacteria etc) we are proud to present this cutting-edge webinar.
