Paper Abstract

The present work summarizes our recent results in combining the FT-Raman & micro-Raman techniques with the high sensitivity of the surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) to characterize and monitor cancer disease in the tissue biopsy. The Raman imaging technique used for investigating the samples identified SERS signal in the Ag colloidal incubated tissues which provided a great deal of molecular information about the studied samples, indicating at the same time the chemisorption of the Ag nanoparticles inside the biological tissues. A comparison between two different set-ups, a dispersive instrument and an FT-Raman one employed for the investigation of the same samples is also presented and discussed.
