A comprehensive study on Raman Spectroscopy has been carried out which involved the participation of 224 experienced end-users and profiled current practices, developments, trends and plans over the next three years, as well as growth and opportunities across key life science, research and clinical sectors of these markets. Its findings provide a wealth of market information on the current and evolving laboratory use of Raman Spectroscopy.


Raman Spectroscopy is a technique used to observe molecular vibrational, rotational, and other low-frequency characteristics. Relying on inelastic scattering (or Raman scattering) of monochromatic light, this technique allows the identification of molecules from the unique fingerprint that Raman-active molecules provide.



This technique has established a unique position among spectroscopic methods and supports important applications in the life science and research fields, and now increasingly in clinically-related areas. Raman Spectroscopy has seen important and exciting advances in the last decade and its use continues to grow as new applications are developed. This report presents the findings of a new global study of Raman Spectroscopy that profiled the laboratory use of this technique across research, life science and clinical sectors.
