Join  us for our webinar August 4 at 2:00pm EST with guest speaker Dr. Luis Rodriguez-Saona, who will share his groundbreaking disease diagnosis work on our NRS-4100 1064 nm Raman microscope: Metabolic fingerprinting for diagnosis of fibromyalgia and other rheumatology disorders using Raman microscopy analysis of bloodspots

In a ground breaking development, researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have discovered biological markers that can be used to quickly and accurately diagnose fibromyalgia, while differentiating it from other chronic pain conditions. Diagnosis was made using a JASCO NRS-4100 NIR Raman system.

Dr. Luis Rodriguez-Saona, co-author of the study and professor of food science and technology at Ohio State, explains, “Now, we can see that certain patterns in those fingerprints indicate fibromyalgia, while different ones signal other conditions.”
