Pork fat samples measured by Raman, with HPLC as reference

The samples for this study were 16 pork carcasses taken from the daily production stock of a slaughterhouse. Cylinders of the fat were drilled out using an 12 mm rotary biopsy punch drill and subsequently sliced in discs (height 1.8 mm) to create a depth profile. In total 105 discs were acquired from the 16 loins. Each disc was divided in two, and one half was analyzed by Raman spectroscopy and the other half was used for reference analysis by HPLC.
