Techs of the Week

A portfolio of technologies applies mid-infrared spectroscopy to the analysis of fluids, including blood, serum, and other biological fluids. Tests are non-destructive and the techniques require no reagents or other chemicals. The spectroscopic signatures obtained from the samples can be used to aid the diagnosis of disease, since molecular signatures are unique. Multiple analytes can be obtained from one sample within a single measurement, and typical tests require only 30 seconds. Click here for more info.
