Hans-Knöll-Institut

The HKI is a world-leading academic research centre in the field of natural product research and infection biology of human-pathogenic fungi. Employing a multi-disciplinary appoach the HKI develops new technologies that are used to identify natural products, to characterise their function and exploit their mechanisms of action in order to elucidate cellular processes. In addition, the HKI investigates the pathobiology of infections caused by human-pathogenic fungi.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
