Medical biophotonics: From lasers to blochips

Journal Article

Medical use of biophotonics for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes was discussed. Nanoparticle based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) technology enabled sensitive detection of a variety of compounds of environmental and medical interest. Biosensors were found to be capable of detecting and differentiating bio/chemical constituents of complex systems for identification and accurate quantitation of chemical and biological sensing. It was also observed that the biochip can be use to diagnose genetic susceptibility and diseases and can also be used to monitor exposure to biological pathogens and to bioactive environmental samples.
