Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
