Abstract
Spectrometry is a well established method for in vitro and in vivo measurements. For interpretation of experimental results and patient monitoring it is important to regard the catchment volume and penetration depth of backscattered light. We investigated different suspensions of rat liver mitochondria as well as rat liver homogenate in a scattering chamber combined with a scanning procedure. To compare these results with a common used medium we measured Lipofundin 2% additionally. The highest light intensity caused Lipofundin 2%, followed by 100% mitochondrial concentration, liver homogenate and 50% mitochondrial concentration. Most of times the light penetrates slightly pronounced in lateral than in forward direction. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of optical fibers with different thickness on catchment volume and penetration depth. Optical fibers were applied with a diameter of 200 micrometers and 250 micrometers respectively presenting a great increase in catchment volume and penetration depth in the larger one.
