5 New Things to look out for in the updated Breath Biopsy Guide
Published on 21 Jul 20
Breath Biopsy: The Complete Guide - Third Edition
As science evolves, so must Breath Biopsy®: The Complete Guide. As leaders in the breath research field, we recognise that a lot changes take place from year to year in the technology and research of our community. Our Guide provides you with a handy reference for everything Breath Biopsy related and it’s important to us that it continues to provide the latest findings and innovations. Whether you already have the previous versions of this e-book or you are looking at downloading it for the first time, you will find something new to catch your interest.
The first update you might notice is that we have given Breath Biopsy: The Complete Guide a different look with a new cover. Not only is it new-looking on the outside, we have updated a large amount of the images, tables and graphics inside. You might also notice that it is now longer than the previous version, as we have expanded a lot of the content… continue reading to find out more.
1. More Research Results!
There are now so many published studies in the field that we gave them their own chapter. In addition to existing work, the ‘VOC Application Case Study’ chapter has been updated with new content in several disease areas. It now contains examples of how Breath Biopsy and FAIMS technologies have been applied in studies looking at asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary hypertension, cancer, inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases and more.
Breath Biopsy is now in use at over 100 clinical sites worldwide and we were not able to include all diseases in detail but don’t miss out the summary table including 15 fascinating studies at the very end of the chapter.
4. EVOC® Probes and Example Research Applications of EVOC Probes
After you check out the new liver disease section, you might want to have a look at ‘EVOC Probes’ and ‘Example Research Applications of EVOC Probes’ (after all, you don’t need to read it all in one go, and we’ve made changes to help you find the most relevant information for you). EVOC Probes are a specific Breath Biopsy solution that is currently of special interest to liver disease research.
We have dedicated a section of the Guide to Exogenous Volatile Organic Compound (EVOC) Probes because this innovative tool complements biomarker discovery with Breath Biopsy by enabling targeted stimulation of biological pathways. Download the Guide to find out what EVOC Probes are and how they can be applied to your studies using Breath Biopsy. We’ve also included an example of how they can be used to study liver metabolism.
