Use of nanoparticles for studying hemoglobin

We present the advantages and features of comprehensive application of atomic force microscopy, laser interference microscopy, and Raman microscopy to study erythrocytes. We have determined the effectiveness of signal enhancement as a function of the size of silver nanoparticles in the Raman method. We consider the feasibility of using the developed techniques for clinical diagnosis.
