In his PhD thesis titled "Rapid Identification and Classification of Food-relevant Spoilage Microorganisms by Raman- and IR-microspectroscopy" Klein pursued the rapid identification and classification of food-relevant microorganisms. For this purpose, spectra were generated by Raman and IR microspectroscopy of the bacteria and assigned using statistical methods.
„"Raw meat quickly shows bacterial infestation. Consuming a sufficient amount of contaminated meat can be hazardous to health. To prevent this, I make contaminations (e.g. bacteria) visible on complex substrates (e.g. meat)."”
