Researchers at East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C., have developed a combined laser tweezers and Raman spectroscopy technique that enables them to capture and measure both transparent and nontransparent particles. The system could prove useful in industrial and scientific laboratories.

Raman spectroscopy is extremely useful to biochemists, with a single spectrum revealing the presence and relative concentrations of dozens of chemicals.† Spectroscopy of individual cells is particularly valuable, since it would allow researchers to observe biochemical changes as they happen during the growth and division or when cells become sick or cancerous.
ECU group has made the first study of living cells using Raman Tweezers, a combined laser tweezers and Raman spectroscopy (LTRS) system.
