Andor targets cancer and counterfeit drugs

Andor Technology has helped scientists working within cancer diagnosis, counterfeit medicine detection and auto-immune diseases.

Scientists have detected and identified the chemical composition of calcified material within a 16mm depth animal tissue, using an Andor camera transmission and Raman spectroscopy. This technique may ultimately be used in conjunction with the existing mammography or ultrasound techniques to improve the diagnosis of human cancer.

Another team of researchers devised a non-invasive method of analysis to detect counterfeit medication, without having to open the packaging that could lead to the protection of unsuspecting populations.

And another group of scientists was able to validate a novel methodology using anti-bodies' spectral response to help medical professionals provide a diagnosis for auto-immune diseases, such as sclerosis conditions.
