Raman spectroscopy

Ongoing work as part of CERVIVA, funded by Enterprise Ireland has been developing a novel tool for cervical cancer screening based on Raman spectroscopy. Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool that can generate a biochemical fingerprint of a sample in a rapid and non-destructive manner. Raman spectroscopy is an optical method based on inelastic light scattering.

MicroActive automatic detection of disease related molecular cell activity

Many common diseases currently require that samples be sent to remote labs for diagnosis. This is costly and takes time, increasing patient anxiety and delaying the start of treatment. MicroActive will make it feasible to carry out automatic, accurate diagnosis at the local doctor office.
