Raman spectroscopy could be used at point of care to reduce the need for inpatient admission in people with gout or pseudogout, according to results presented to the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting in Boston in November.

SERS was used to analyse the traditional Chinese medicines Coptis chinensis and Phellodendron amurense, and their main active constituent berberine using silver nanospheres as SERS-active probes.
