We’re happy to announce the publication of our latest paper entitled Crystal clear: vibrational spectroscopy reveals intra-bone, intra-skeleton and inter-skeleton variation in human bones! This paper was co-authored by David Gonçalves, Ana Rita Vassalo, Adriana Mamede, Calil Makhoul, Giampaolo Piga, Eugénia Cunha, Maria Paula Marques, and Luís Batista de Carvalho.
The objective was to assess how local-specific several chemometric indices, often analyzed through FTIR-ATR, really are in human bone. We analyzed more than a 1,000 samples from human bones. To our knowledge, this was the largest ever sample used in this kind of studies. Hope you like it!
