Lab notes: Lasers can help monitor burn wound healing


Burn injuries are a major public health issue and management of these a key concern. Regular assessment of healing tissues is necessary but biopsies are painful and may hinder healing process. A group of Indian scientists has come up with a solution for easier assessment of healing progression using laser light. Scientists at Manipal University in Karnataka have demonstrated the ability of laser-induced fluorescence technique to quantify the amount of collagen in healing tissues and thus analyze the recovery process. The more the collagen content, the healthier the tissue. more
