Use of Fourier-Transform Infrared (FTIR) Microscopy Method Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Reliable and rapid identification of the fungal pathogens that cause plant diseases is playing an important role in their control strategies. The available methods for identification of fungi are time-consuming and not always very specific. Fourier-transform infrared microscopy is proving to be a reliable and sensitive method for detection of molecular changes in cells. Fungi pathogens display typical infrared spectra that differ from spectra of substrate material such as potato, which make it is possible to detect and …
