Practical Applications for Fluorescence Spectroscopy

The research is aimed at exploring diverse applications of fluorescence spectroscopy. Using a portable inexpensive (<$ 20.00) UV/VIS/IR optical spectrometer system designed by the SciHub laboratory, the research focused on the development of a fluorescence instrument that can detect melanoma skin cancer in humans. The ideal test samples are not used due to the difficulty in obtaining melanoma lesion biopsies. The results from on-going tests under the same conditions used to detect skin cancer will determine the efficiency and practicality of the spectrometer for this application.
