Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the major clinical problems known to mankind, especially among adult women. Conventional methods for identification of UTI causing bacteria are time consuming and expensive. Therefore, a rapid and cost-effective method is desired. In the present study, five bacteria (one Gram-positive and four Gram-negative), most commonly known to cause UTI, have been identified and classified using micro-Raman spectroscopy combined with principal component analysis (PCA).
