Biomolecules, Cells and Tissue Studied by IR-Spectroscopy
contributed by Bruker |
For more than 30 years, molecules have been analyzed in the solid, liquid and gaseous state on the basis of their specific vibrations. So, the (FT-) IR spectroscopy has become an indispensable tool in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry for characterizing materials and identifying substances. In the last years, however, a completely new application field in the area of Life Science has opened up to this non-invasive analysis technique. Pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies use this technique to analyze both proteins and cellular systems in order to develop new drugs and products.
