ATR-FTIR Spectroscopy Tools for Medical Diagnosis and Disease Investigation

Abstract

Vibrational spectroscopic techniques are increasingly utilized in biomedical research. Attenuated total reflection Fourier-transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy has been applied extensively to investigate various diseases by determining the chemical and molecular differences coming with the disease. Being label-free, nondestructive, and inexpensive, biospectroscopy could potentially make a perfect diagnostic tool in the years to come.
