The intent of this book a collection of manuscripts - is to provide general descriptions of analytical techniques which we believe to be useful to the biological scientist, and to provide examples of the utility of each technique. The contributing authors were asked to focus on examples in which their particular technique has proven particularly useful in studies of biological systems. Many commonly used analytical techniques such as NMR and ESR are not included in this work, it is preferred to focus on techniques which perhaps have not received as much coverage as in the recent literature. All of the analytical tools covered in this volume have great utility, and the scientific community can expect to see increasing usage of most if not all of these techniques.

Vibrational Spectroscopy Applications in Biomedical, Pharmaceutical and Food Sciences synthesizes the latest research on the applications of vibrational spectroscopy in biomedical, pharmaceutical and food analysis. Suitable for graduate-level students as well as experienced researchers in academia and industry, this book is organized into five distinct sections. The first deals with the fundamentals of vibrational spectroscopy, with the second presenting the most important sampling methodology used for infrared and Raman spectroscopy in various fields of interest. Since spectroscopy is the study of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter, this section deals with the characteristics, properties and absorption of electromagnetic radiation. Final sections describe the analytical studies performed all over the world in biomedical, pharmaceutical and in the food sciences. Presents a critical discussion of many of the applications of vibrational spectroscopy Covers details of the analytical methodologies used in pharmaceutical and biomedical applications Discusses the latest developments in pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis of both small and large molecules

Although infrared spectroscopy has been applied with success to the study of important biological and biomedical processes for many years, key advances in this vibrant technique have led to its increasing use, ranging from characterization of individual macromolecules (DNA, RNA, lipids, proteins) to human tissues, cells and their components. Infrared spectroscopy thus has a significant role to play in the analysis of the vast number of genes and proteins being identified by the various genomic sequencing projects. Whilst this book gives an overview of the field, it highlights more recent developments, such as the use of bright synchrotron radiation for recording infrared spectra, the development of two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy and the ability to record infrared spectra at ultra fast speeds.

Chemometrics is the application of mathematics and statistics to chemical data in order to design or select optimal experimental procedures, to provide maximum relevant information, and to obtain knowledge about systems under study. This chemical discipline has constantly developed to become a mature field of Analytical Chemistry after its inception in the 1970s. The utility and versatility of chemometric techniques enable spectroscopists to perform multidimensional classification and/or calibration of spectral data that make identification and quantification of analytes in complex mixtures possible.Wavelets are mathematical functions that cut up data into different frequency components, and then study each component with a resolution matched to its scale. They are now being adapted for a vast number of signal processing due to their unprecedented success in terms of asymptotic optimality, spatial adaptivity and computational efficiency. In analytical chemistry, they have increasingly shown great applicability and have been preferred over existing signal processing algorithms in noise removal, resolution enhancement, data compression and chemometrics modeling in chemical studies.The aim of this Research Topic is to present state-of-the-art applications of chemometrics, in the field of spectroscopy, with special attention to the use of wavelet transform. Both reviews and original research articles on pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis are welcome in the specialty section Analytical Chemistry.

As there recently has been increased interest in the applications of optical techniques in biomedical research and clinical diagnostics, it seemed to be appropriate to organize a comprehensive international conference on optics in medicine and biology. Such a broad international meeting had not been held before. An international conference on Optics in Biomedical Sciences was organized and took place in Graz, Austria, September 7th through 11th, 1981, sponsored by the International Commission for Optics (ICO) in co operation with the European Optical Committee, the Austrian Association on Biomedical Engineering, and the German Society for Applied Optics. It seemed timely to establish a forum for communication among specialists on an international level. This book, presenting the papers given at this conference, demonstrates the state of the art of this increasingly expanding field of applications of optics. Furthermore, the interested reader will find an extended list of references in the various contributions. This book helps to overcome the difficulty, inherent in all interdisciplinary research fields, of gathering widely scattered literature. The contributions to this book are focussed on the following topics: Biomedical applications of - unconventional imaging in microscopy, - image processing, - interferometry and holography, - speckle-techniques and spectroscopy, - optometry, and - Moire methods. In addition, the brilliant and humorous closing remarks of Nils Abramson from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, have been included.
