Spectroscopy & Diagnostic

In the lunch session “Spectroscopy & Diagnostic” innovative, label free imaging techniques for the characterization of tissue and the analysis of body fluids will be presented by leading scientists. Using Raman and FTIR imaging, tumor tissue can be classified. Thereby, classical H&E staining and other laborious immunohistochemical techniques for tissue staining can be complemented by an automated, label free technique. State of the art approaches for the analysis of tumor tissue will be presented as well. In addition, recent studies on the early detection of neurodegenerative diseases will be presented. For example, Alzheimer’s disease can be detected at a very early stage using the newly developed immuno ATR sensor on blood sample.
