Human breath contains a broad spectrum of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These molecules offer a unique way to study human metabolism and detect various diseases. The Vocus chemical ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometer (CI-TOF) provides real-time, quantitative and humidity independent measurements essential for reliable breath analysis. In this webinar we will demonstrate the advantages of breath analysis with the Vocus CI-TOF based on recent measurements and discuss potential applications in disease diagnostics, pharmacokinetics and exposure assessment.
Above: A team of researchers from IRCELYON and ISA (CNRS/University of Lyon, France) has deployed the Vocus PTR-TOF at the Croix Rousse Hospital in Lyon, France to study breath analysis for COVID-19 detection.
Key Discussion Points
- The advantages and challenges of the breath analysis method
- The Vocus CI-TOF as an optimal tool for breath analysis
- Applications of breath analysis, from disease diagnostics to aroma analysis in a consumer’s nose.
