SERS for Point-of-care and Clinical Applications focuses on the use of Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (also known as Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering) techniques in clinical and point-of-care settings. Sections provide an overview of SERS biomedical applications, providing in-depth information about point-of-care and clinical applications of SERS using specific examples from current literature. These applications are not always immediately evident to newcomers in the field, as Raman and SERS are often introduced as analytical methods for chemical analysis. This book offers a concise introduction to the biomedical applications of SERS for graduate students, scientists and researchers in all related fields.
