  Abstract Over the last few years, FTIR spectroscopy has become a potential analytical method in tissue and cell studies for cancer diagnosis. This has opened a way towards clinical applications such as a tool that would scan samples to assess the presence or absence of malignant cells in biopsies, or as an aid to help pathologists to better characterise those cells that are suspicious but not diagnostic for cancer. The latter application has the problem that in order to assess these cells pathologists would have already dealt with stained samples. Therefore, it is important to understand how staining would affect the spectra of cells. To this purpose, we have conducted this study in order to clarify, first, how haematoxylin and eosin (H&E) and Papanicolau (Pap) stainings affect the spectra of single cells and, second, whether FTIR spectroscopy could differentiate between stained lung cancer cells and their normal counterparts. Furthermore, different cell preparations (cytospin, and smear) used in cytological diagnosis were assessed. Experiments performed using a bright infrared (IR) source (synchrotron) showed that both H&E and Pap staining induced marked changes in the lipid and amide-II band regions. Despite this, FTIR spectroscopy of already stained cells is capable of differentiating between lung cancer cells and their normal counterparts. The clinical applications of this methodology are discussed.
