Abstract

Multiple scattering of light by cells posesses a significant challenge in the development of near-infrared based methodologies to reliably extract chemical and physical information contained in the spectra collected during the bactrial growth cycle. The extent of information that can be obtained from NIR spectra could, in principle, be vastly improved if the scattering and absoption effects can be effectively separated.
