There is a requirement for a noninvasive technique to monitor stem cell differentiation. Several candidates based on optical spectroscopy are discussed in this review: Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy. These techniques are briefly described, and the ability of each to distinguish undifferentiated from differentiated cells is discussed. FTIR spectroscopy has demonstrated its ability to distinguish… Expand
Raman spectroscopy and CARS microscopy of stem cells and their derivatives.
TLDR
Raman spectroscopy has revealed that DNA and RNA levels drop when a stem cell differentiates into other cell types, which is linked to a change in the relative sizes of the nucleus and cytoplasm. Expand
Role of Vibrational Spectroscopy in Stem Cell Research
Recent researches have mainly displayed the significant role of stem cells in tissue renewal and homeostasis with their unique capacity to develop different cell types. These findings have clarifiedExpand
Vibrational spectroscopy differentiates between multipotent and pluripotent stem cells.
TLDR
Results show that embryonic stem cells might be more sensitive to O(2) concentration when compared to mesenchymal stem cells, and that vibrational spectroscopy could be of potential use in identifying different populations of stem cells. Expand
Identification of abnormal stem cells using Raman spectroscopy.
TLDR
By using Raman spectroscopy, this work was able to map the distribution of different biomolecules within 2 types of stem cells and to identify reproducible differences in Raman's spectral characteristics that distinguished genetically abnormal and transformed stem cells from their normal counterparts.

Label-free identification and characterization of murine hair follicle stem cells located in thin tissue sections with Raman micro-spectroscopy.
TLDR
Stem cells that reside in hair follicles are suitable for testing this possibility since they are close to the skin surface, and typically clustered around the bulge area, and significant differences in peak intensities associated with nucleic acids, proteins, lipids and amino acids are revealed.
