Seminar on Vibrational Biospectroscopy and Imaging

Modern techniques of Raman and IR imaging with chemometric analysis

The seminar will focus on the two modern spectroscopic techniques, Raman mapping and infrared imaging, chemometric analysis with a special emphasis on biological and biomedical application.

During the seminar we offer:
• the workshop on chemometrics
• presentations of IR and Raman instrumentation
• presentations of research results

19-21 June 2013, Krakow
