In this paper we describe the scanning setup for investigating refracted beam spectra from changed cancer tissues. A special mechanical construction enables us to position measurement sensors using step motors and a micrometric XY stage. A fiber sensor which has been made of special fiber that does not provide any self fluorescence has been used for the illumination and detection.
