Leibnitz Institute for Age Research

Leibnitz Institute for Age Research

The overall goal of the Leibnitz Institute’s for Age Research, also called Fritz-Lipmann-Institute’s (FLI), is the dissection of mechanisms of decisive processes, in particular pathological processes which lead to consequences for health and healthy ageing. Within this broad area, specific topics are chosen that are formally divided into two programmes which are highly interconnected through scientific content and methodology: 'Mechanisms of Ageing and Senescence' and 'Age-associated Diseases'.

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.
