Vibrational spectroscopies, based on infrared absorption and/or Raman scattering provide a detailed fingerprint of a material, based on the chemical content. Diagnostic and prognostic tools based on these technologies have the potential to revolutionise our clinical systems leading to improved patient outcome, more efficient public services and significant economic savings. (Extract from critical review on “Clinical applications of infrared and Raman spectroscopy: state of play and future challenges” by Matthew Baker et al, Analyst, 10.1039/C7AN01871A).
