Advantage of Raman spectroscopy in medical applications
1-Raman spectroscopy can be applied to a wide range of sample morphologies, including single crystals, films, fibres', suspensions, aggregates, or precipitates.
2-Samples require minimal preparation-no need for fixation or staining.
3-Can provide a high degree of information which not easy to obtain by other methods.
4-In comparison with other diagnostic techniques, Raman spectroscopy require small amount of sample.
5-Non destructive, non-invasive method for medical applications.
6-Raman spectra can be acquired quickly.
7-Raman spectroscopy is ideal for studying biological matter.
