Raman microscopy is a nondestructive technique requiring minimal sample preparation that can be used to measure the chemical properties of the mineral and collagen parts of bone simultaneously. Modern Raman instruments contain the necessary components and software to acquire the standard information required in most bone studies. The spatial resolution of the technique is about a micron. As it is nondestructive and small samples can be used, it forms a useful part of a bone characterization toolbox.
