Clinical applications and applications in doctors practices

Photonics4Life aims at the involvement of physicians in the development of Biophotonic tools at all stages, e.g. before developing Biophotonic tools for application on patients the needs and demands of physicians must be known in detail. At the final stages of their development the applications of Biophotonic tools under real-world-conditions must ensure that these tools are not only suited for their dedicated use, but have also the appropriate robustness and satisfy the demands for easy-to-use systems.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
