Infrared spectroscopy can be used as an anlytical method for biofluids. One application is the diagnosis of malaria.
The analysis of biofluids with IR is always a question of hygiene. By reducing the price of our Single Reflection ATR Crystals, they can be used as disposables – enabling many new applications.

Surface-Enhanced Infrared Absorption Spectroscopy (SEIRAS) of Light-Activated Photosynthetic Reaction Centers from Rhodobacter sphaeroides Reconstituted in a Biomimetic Membrane System

Authors: V Nedelkovski, A Schwaighofer, C A Wraight, C Nowak, R L C Naumann

By applying a gold film on top of ATR Crystals, a signal enhancement is achieved. Molecules like purified RCs can be immobilized as a monolayer on top of this gold film.

Subwavelength Structures for Interference Enhanced Attenuated Total Reflection Spectroscopy and its Application for Blood Analysis

Authors: L Sykora, A Müller, A Roth, S Kondratiev

Attenuated total reflectance (ATR) infrared absorption spectroscopy is a well-established analytical method. However, the sensitivity is limited compared to transmission measurements by the penetration depth of the evanescent wave. Innovative ATR Crystals with subwavelength pillars were made from silicon. First experiments show an enhancement factor of up to 20 compared to a standard single reflection diamond ATR element.
