About This Webinar
Rapid detection is a key tool in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic to accurately trace where the virus has been and where it may transmit to next. Derek Guenther presents a surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy technique that uses metallic nanoparticles and laser excitation to enhance trace detection of viral indicators such as the spike protein or resulting antibodies.

About the presenter:
Derek GuentherDerek Guenther has a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from the University of South Florida (USF), with a minor in inorganic chemistry. His work at the USF Institute for Environmental Studies focused on novel silica-based algaecides targeting invasive species. His current strengths and passions lie in new chemical sensor development and spectral numerical processing. He has spent over 12 years at Ocean Insight developing and supporting the optical oxygen, pH, and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-based sensor products. Today he works with the Lab Services team, helping customers to achieve their goals.
