How TouchRaman can aid in better nutritional grains
Genetically, some seeds will produce better grains with greater nutritional value. Is there a scientific measurement tool that could identify which seeds would produce higher quality grains.
Using light and vibration to read the chemical make-up of a substance, TouchRaman was applied to seeds. Reading the outputs against a database of seed profiles allows researchers to “see” if a seed has the properties to produce high quality grains.
In a world where genetically modified is a dirty word, this is a natural way to improve farming and provide better nutritional value to customers.
Collectors want to verify authenticity
A cribbage board collector had a few antique boards made with ivory. Or were they? He wanted to be sure that he had, in fact, authentic ivory cribbage boards.
The collectors cribbage boards were brought into the lab, where the TouchRaman technology was able to verify the cribbage board materials. Without having to shave a little sample of the board and incurring permanently damage, the TouchRaman probe was simply placed on the board for the reading. Light and vibrations readings showed the cribbage boards were in fact ivory.
Collectors need to verify the quality of their antiques and buyers want to know they are getting authenticity. TouchRaman is able to test without causing damage and provides immediate feedback.
Surgeons and doctors want to take only what is necessary when removing bad tissue.
During a surgical process, doctors want the assurance they have removed all damaged or infected tissue. And they want that assurance but only taking what is necessary and no excess.
The TouchRaman Ballprobe can be used in the surgery room to give the doctor real-time information about the health of tissue in the body.
In the surgery room, time is of the essence. Doctors don't have the time to wait for lab results. And where the tissue is critical, like in the brain, taking only what is necessary gives the patient the best chance for success and health after surgery.
