Profiling Tumor Cells

Cancerous and noncancerous cells can be distinguished by comparing Raman spectral lines
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: SERS, Raman, cancer detection, glycosylation

Cancerous and noncancerous cells can be distinguished by comparing spectral lines from surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, or SERS (J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 2010, 1, 1595). The results point to a way to use spectroscopic fingerprinting to identify biomarkers on cell surfaces and improve cancer diagnosis, say Boston University’s Bo Yan and Björn M. Reinhard, who developed the technique. The . . .
