Raman imaging meets cells and nanomaterials – New perspectives in 3D chemical characterization

Originally aired: October 5, 2017

This webcast will offer a comprehensive overview of the technology and methods of confocal Raman microscopy including 3D correlative Raman imaging integrated with SEM or AFM.

This powerful and increasingly common technique can characterize the components of a sample by looking at the unique “fingerprint” its molecular bonds show as they scatter light. We aim to convey its capability and versatility while making it more accessible. Application examples will focus on cell and tissue research, diagnostics, pharmaceutics and materials science. The non-destructive, label-free and convenient nature of Raman microscopy will be emphasized, showing how samples can be rapidly investigated without specialized, if any, sample preparation. The intuitive software routines for post-processing and data evaluation will also be described, along with the advantages of correlative techniques for structural and molecular analysis. There will be a short introduction from WITec followed by a presentation by Professor Dr. Klaus Gerwert, Chair of the Department of Biophysics at Ruhr-University Bochum, who will present specific approaches and application examples.
 
During this webcast you will learn/the speakers will address:

  • The theoretical basis and associated hardware and software related to confocal Raman microscopy
  • Possibilities for Raman investigations including several application examples from various fields
  • Correlative Raman imaging and the value of seeing a sample with different methods to understand in more completely
