Early cancer diagnosis: The use of Raman spectroscopy in leading-edge biosensor development

In a relatively short span of time, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) has become a powerful tool in the development of innovative high-sensitivity biosensors capable of detecting and measuring cancer biomarkers at the earliest possible stage.

A pioneer in the field of SERS-based biosensor research, Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC) used Renishaw's inVia™ confocal Raman microscope to support this ground-breaking work.
