Join Asst. Prof Caitlin Davis of Yale University to learn about recent research on a critical metabolic process in live cells – de novo lipogenesis, using a breakthrough new technology that enables IR spectroscopy and imaging at submicron spatial resolution on a wide range of samples including in water. The breakthrough technology that enables sub-micron IR spectroscopy is Optical Photothermal IR Spectroscopy (O-PTIR). Prof. Davis will discuss how she uses O-PTIR to probe metabolic heterogeneity in live cells with rapid sub-micron IR imaging.
In the opening part of this webinar, hear from Dr. Mustafa Kansiz (PSC), as he provides an introductory overview of O-PTIR and how it’s being used by scientists in a wide range of application areas including, life science, microplastics, pharmaceutical sub-visible particulates and contamination identification in industrial failure analysis.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Understand the principle of operation for submicron IR spectroscopy
- Learn about specific applications of simultaneous IR and Raman
- How O-PTIR can advance your research goals and increase the impact of your publications
Who Should Attend:
- Research Professors and Academics
- Laboratory Directors and Managers
- Industrial Failure Analysis Engineers
- Chemical and Polymer Engineers and Scientists
- Vibrational Spectroscopists
