The article focuses on the novel application of Fourier-transform infrared-attenuated total reflection (FTIR-ATR) spectroscopic imaging in high-throughput analysis for drug development and microfluids. It defines FTIR-ATR as a non-destructive technique that provides a reproducible small interaction depth. It proposes a way to overcome a problem associated with using FTIR image. The article also discusses the use of FTIR-ATR imaging in microfludics.
