  • Patent number: 9927352
    Abstract: Methods are described herein and termed Microbial Community Screening and Profiling (MCSP) for multi-dimensional analysis and non-destructive and label-free detection and analysis, which allow for complementary analytical techniques to be performed on the same sample for such multidimensional analysis.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20070078348
    Abstract: A catheter based method and apparatus for reflectance generated absorption spectral analysis of chronic inflammatory vascular conditions such as seen with atherosclerotic plaque within a blood vessel or other body cavity or compartment. The use of a bright mid range infrared light (mid-IR) source yields detectable reflected optical signals that may be sampled from an area smaller or larger than the typical diameter of a mammalian cell. The mid-IR light is delivered at selected mid-infrared wavenumbers. Using the apparatus and methods, the reflectance spectra and reflectance generated absorption spectra of a target tissue can be compared to reference spectra to identify and distinguish normal epithelium from tissue containing physiological markers indicative of vascular disease or other inflammatory conditions.
