Location: Virus and Prion Research
Project Number: 5030-32000-114-05-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2018
End Date: Aug 31, 2019
The objective of this agreement is to test the effectiveness of Raman Spectroscopic analysis on skin samples to identify animals infected with chronic wasting disease.
Raman spectroscopy techniques were developed previously by the cooperator using skin samples from experimentally infected white-tailed deer. Will be tested on field samples obtained by ARS scientists for the project.
