Paper Abstract

The Fourier-transform infrared spectra of intact procaryotic cells (bacteria) have already been used in the past to characterize (differentiate, classify and identify) a variety of bacterial strains and taxa. In this paper the essential features of a methodology are described which extend the FT-IR pattern recognition approach to intact eucaryotic cells (yeasts/fungi). Basically, the characteristic information pertaining to microbial FT-IR patterns is explored by applying multivariate statistics and cluster analysis to both the time and frequency domain of the mid-ir spectral data.
