Practical utility of surface spectroscopy in biomaterials is viewed from an abstract analytical science perspective in which the desired target information is compared to that obtained through spectroscopic probes. Through a five step reasoning process it is concluded that much of the information obtained by surface spectroscopy is not directly relevant to biomaterial end-use properties. A context is proposed to make more effective use of the indirect, but still very useful, analytical information derived from surface spectroscopy in biomaterials research.
