Expert Insight: Raman Microscopy from Every Angle - Variations of 3D Chemical Imaging for Life Sciences and Pharmaceutics

Find out more about the fundamental principles of Raman spectroscopy and the how confocal Raman imaging could help you with your research

03 Oct 2018

Dr. David Steinmetz, Director of Applications & Support, WITec GmbH

3D confocal Raman imaging is a powerful, versatile and increasingly common microscopy technique, capable of quickly identifying the molecules in a sample and visualizing their physical distribution. This nondestructive and label-free method has enormous potential for researchers in life sciences, food science and pharmaceuticals, among many others.

In our upcoming webinar, Dr. David Steinmetz will introduce the fundamental principles of the Raman effect on which the technique is based, detail the associated hardware and software, describe several of its variations and provide relevant application examples. The capability, utility and accessibility of confocal Raman imaging will also be demonstrated, before a live question and answer session.

Who should attend?

Researchers in the fields of life sciences, food science and pharmaceuticals from both academia and industry may benefit from this webinar.

Participants will be presented with:

  • The theoretical basis and associated hardware and software for several variations of confocal Raman microscopy
  • Descriptions of 3D image generation techniques based on the Raman spectral acquisition
  • Examples of Raman microscopy investigations from life sciences, food science and pharmaceutics
  • Details of different microscope beam path geometries suited to various requirements

All webinar participants can download a certificate of attendance, with a learning outcomes summary document for continuing education purposes.
