Sensor to Detect B-12 Deficiency Developed To Help in Dementia, Alzheimer’s

In old-age, the frequent occurrence of B12 deficiency could lead to dementia and even Alzheimer’s disease as the body metabolism fails to absorb the vitamin from the diet, requiring an early medical intervention. To help detect B12 deficieny early, Australia’s University of Adelaide researchers have developed a first of its kind optical sensor using a technique called Raman spectroscopy that ...

Raman Spectroscopy Helps Disgnose Kidney Disease Replacing Biopsies

Using Raman Spectroscopy, US-based scientists have developed a new less-invasive disgnostic tool to identify kidney diseases and assess its severity level. Otherwise, Raman spectroscopy was also being used in exploring Mars surface by geologists. Professor Chandra Mohan of the University of Houston and his colleague Wei-Chuan Shih have found that there is a difference in signals obtained from a healthy ...
