Diagnostic Pattern Recognition Using Mid-IR Spectroscopy
- Friday, 24 August 2007
By applying mid-infrared spectroscopy to bodily fluids, this suite of technologies offers the potential for quick, accurate, and inexpensive diagnostic support for a variety of diseases in humans or animals. Every disease or condition results in quantitative imbalances in the “normally occurring” molecules of the body — raised glucose or cholesterol, for example. Pathogens like bacteria and viruses contribute their own molecular loads as well as destabilizing the body’s “homeostasis;” its usual stable and healthy condition. A spectrographic “snapshot” of sample fluids from blood serum, lymph, and saliva can be matched to the unique spectroscopic pattern of known conditions and diseases. Pattern recognition can then result in a quick diagnosis.
Room-temperature operation is possible; there is no need for cooling with liquid nitrogen.
