Ftir-microspectroscopy as a diagnostic method for cancer cells Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract–In the present study we have compared the spectral behavior of malignant cells with normal untransformed cells using microscopic Fourier-Transform Infrared (FTIR-M) spectroscopy in order to evaluate the potential of this technique for early detection of cancer cells. Cells were transformed by infection with murine sarcoma virus (MuSV) and examined at various times post infection (p. i) by FTIRM. Our results showed significant and consistent differences between the normal cells and malignant cells. A considerable decrease in …
