Announcement for the 11th Workshop

FT-IR Spectroscopy in Microbiological and Medical Diagnostics

hosted by the Robert Koch-Institute in Berlin / Germany

October 19-20, 2017


It is our great pleasure to invite to the 11th workshop "FT-IR Spectroscopy in Microbiological and Medical Diagnostics". The workshop is being held at the Robert Koch-Institute October 19-20, 2017. The 2017 workshop will continue the tradition of highlighting the relevant fields of applications of biomedical vibrational spectroscopy and will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss, network & encourage the application of IR and Raman spectroscopic techniques for the characterization and differentiation of intact microbial, plant, animal or human cells. Following the lines of the last FT-IR workshops, major points of discussion will be the progress in vibrational spectroscopic research, recent applications in various fields of microbiology, biomedicine and new technological developments.


* Microspectroscopic characterization of microbial colonies, biofilms, population analyses, single cell investigations
* Diagnostics in bio-medicine
* Microspectroscopic studies of individual human cells
* Cell/drug interaction, resistance development and testing
* Epidemiological studies, maintenance of culture collections, therapy control, investigation of infection chains, hygiene control
* Microbiological analyses in the pharmaceutical, food, and water supply industries, and in biotechnology
* New trends in spectral data analysis
