The BreathSpec® has been designed for the analysis of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) metabolic profiles in human breath.
This instrument would be ideal for clinical applications where non-invasive patient screening is valuable to aid the clinician decision making process, determining different treatment or monitoring paths and outcomes.
The main features of the BreathSpec® are:
- Non-invasive analytical instrument
- Extremely easy to use easy to analyse data
- Extremely sensitive, with detection levels at low ppbv or even pptv level
- Integrated with spirometry for simple, safe and approved breath sampling
- Reproducible analysis through highly advanced sample handling (patent pending)
- Very fast analysis with results available within minutes
- Low maintenance, runs at atmospheric pressure, internal gas re-circulator (no separate gas supply needed)
- Ability to build metabolite databases and characterise peak profiles
- Principal Component Analysis (PCA) integrated functionality
