Abstract

Experimental data on the estimation of the qualitative composition of heart valves and their tissue bio-matrices via Raman scattering spectroscopy are presented. The analysis of the Raman spectra allowed identification of the main bands corresponding to collagen, glycosaminoglycans, lipids, and DNA. A two-dimensional analysis of the introduced optical coefficients was performed to compare the compositions of the principal components before and after sample preparation.
