Major research activity

Recent evolution of optical spectroscopic technologies makes their clinical applications more realistic and practical. Especially, Raman spectroscopy is one of the most powerful analytical tools for biomedical analysis. It is possible to obtain molecular information in live cells and tissues without labeling. We develop new instruments and analytical techniques of optical spectroscopy to contribute for biological and medical studies. Miniaturized Raman probes that we have developed make possible to analyze the live tissues, such as tumors and atherosclerosis in body. A Raman microscope with a CO2 incubator is powerful to analyze the molecular alteration in live cells. We apply the method to monitor and control the pluripotent cells (ES and iPS cells), detection of drugs on cancerous cells, analyze the signal transmission system in neural cells. Some of our technologies have been turned into practical phases in the collaboration studies with companies. Many other developments and application studies are going on too. If you are interested in biomedical spectroscopy, do not hesitate to contact me. I am sure that you will like our technologies.
