Recently, Raman spectroscopy has become more and more into the focus of bacterial identification as it is a culture-independent, non-destructive and contact-less method. Since Raman spectroscopy is a phenotypic method lots of parameters can influence the spectra. One of the least controllable factors is transport and storage but it is often not taken into account and therefore these influences on the Raman spectra of bacteria are unknown. In order to investigate this effect, we simulated the… 
Discrimination of Stressed and Non-Stressed Food-Related Bacteria Using Raman-Microspectroscopy
As the identification of microorganisms becomes more significant in industry, so does the utilization of microspectroscopy and the development of effective chemometric models for data analysis and
Bacterial phenotype dependency from CO2 measured by Raman spectroscopy.
Assessing the effect of different pH maintenance situations on bacterial SERS spectra
Phenotyping of bacteria with vibrational spectroscopy has caught much attention in bacteria-related research. It is known that many factors could affect this process. Among them, solution pH
Isolation of bacteria from artificial bronchoalveolar lavage fluid using density gradient centrifugation and their accessibility by Raman spectroscopy
This study presents a Raman-compatible method for isolation of bacteria from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid using density gradient centrifugation and investigates the yield and spectral influence of the isolation on the bacteria.
Phenotypic Differentiation of Autotrophic and Heterotrophic Bacterial Cells Using Raman-D2O Labeling.
Carbon cycling is one of the major biogeochemical processes driven by bacteria. Autotrophic bacteria convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic compounds that are used by heterotrophs. Mixotrophic
Raman Stable Isotope Probing of Bacteria in Visible and Deep UV-Ranges
This work uses UV resonance Raman spectroscopy (UVRR) to evaluate the spectral red-shifts caused by the uptake of isotopes (13C, 15N, 2H(D) and 18O) in E. coli cells and presents a new approach based on the extraction of labeled DNA in combination with UVRR to identify metabolically active cells.

Raman spectroscopy for the differentiation of Enterobacteriaceae: a comparison of two methods.
Enterobacteriaceae are the leading cause of urinary tract infections, and include pathogens such as E. coli, K. pneumoniae and P. mirabilis. Due to their similarity, the correct identification of


Raman spectroscopic detection of Nickel impact on single Streptomyces cells – possible bioindicators for heavy metal contamination
Heavy metal contamination of soil has an immense impact on the surrounding environment, such as the ground water, and hence, has become an important issue within bioremediation. Therefore, heavy
Raman Spectroscopic Discrimination of Cell Response to Chemical and Physical Inactivation
Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool that can be used to evaluate viability and to study metabolic changes in microorganisms and is a robust method for bacterial identification even when high spectral variations are introduced.
Effect of supplementary manganese on the sporulation of Bacillus endospores analysed by Raman spectroscopy
It is a common practice in microbiology to induce and accelerate sporulation of spore-forming bacteria by adding small amounts of divalent manganese to the cultivation medium. By micro-Raman
Detection of bacteria with low-resolution Raman spectroscopy
Bacteria detection methods that are presently used in laboratories and quality control inspections, such as serological testing, biological enrichment, culturing, and gas chromatograph mass
Influence of Culture Media on Microbial Fingerprints Using Raman Spectroscopy
It was found that the most suitable medium for microbiological experiments regarding these organisms was Mueller-Hinton agar, which may enhance the reproducibility of the method as well as simplifying the data processing and the evaluation.
Assessment of two isolation techniques for bacteria in milk towards their compatibility with Raman spectroscopy.
While the samples prepared via milk clearing did not provide sufficient identification results, buoyant density centrifugation allows an identification of the investigated species with an overall accuracy of 91% in combination with linear discriminant analysis.
