Research: Spectroscopic Imaging Of Serum Proteins Using Quantum Cascade Lasers
Research of a simple demonstration of the first biomedical imaging using quantum-cascade lasers, we spectroscopically imaged trace amounts of human serum with high sensitivity and specificity. Using an optically multiplexed platform of three quantum cascade lasers and a microbolometer camera, we detected trace amounts of proteins in human serum as low as 3 μg∕cm2.
