Life Science / Diagnostics

In diagnostic assays as well as in pharmaceutical quality control a whole range of applications can be found through the identification and quantification of molecules for spectroscopic methods. In the life science sector there is a range of applications for spectroscopic methods, since the identification and quantification of molecules is a key aspect in diagnostic assays as well as in pharmaceutical quality control.

In the biotechnological basic research there also are a number of problems (such as the quantitative spectroscopic analysis of complex mixtures from cell extracts, etc.) that can only be carried out with improved spectroscopic devices. For diagnostics in the point-of-care sector, the rapid technological development and the price erosion, make it necessary to develop highly sensitive diagnostic tests to ensure the companies' success on the market. The goal of the network partners is therefore to develop corresponding sensitive and at the same time cost-effective devices for the medical device sector, based on techniques of spectroscopic analysis.
