Paper Abstract

The ability of infrared (IR) spectroscopy to distinguish and map cancerous and non-cancerous tissue has opened the question of the origin of spectral differences between normal and cancerous cells. In this contribution, we report IR spectral maps of individual dried cancer cells, some of them in the process of cell division (mitosis), IR spectra of cells suspended in growth medium, and preliminary results of a statistical analysis of thousands of individual dried cancer cells.
