BreathSpec® and COVID-19
BreathSpec® has demonstrated capability to reliably differentiate between respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Read more here.
A simple collection method is used to capture a person’s breath in a single, unforced exhalation. As the breath flows through the reservoir tube, the syringe is drawn down to capture the breath ready for immediate injection into the BreathSpec®. Once the breath is injected into the BreathSpec®, kit is rapidly analysed by the GC-IMS and a readout is produced.
