Thermo Scientific Webinar

Digital, 07 Jul 2020

As part of our collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific we will be presenting at the Thermo Scientific live and on-demand Webinar Series.

The webinar 'Enhancing Breath Biopsy Through TD-GC-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry' will be available on Tuesday, July 07, 2020 11:00 AM Central European Summer Time (10:00 AM in the UK). Register through this link to watch the webinar.

This presentation will describe how integrating Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass spectrometers into the Breath Biopsy platform has allowed us to address some of the widely accepted challenges associated with breath analysis. Breath Biopsy is a broad ranging tool that can be applied to identify and investigate biomarkers with relevance to early detection and precision medicine across a wide range of diseases including asthma, liver disease and cancers. 

Breath samples can contain over 1000 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and their abundance can span more than 5 orders of magnitude.  Orbitrap technology allows detection of both high-abundance VOCs and trace-level analytes within a single analysis. Combined with an sample processing method that is optimized for breath samples, and a thorough quality control protocol, this ensures that Breath Biopsy is the world-leader in breath biomarker analysis. 

Using the Thermo Scientific Compound Discoverer software package, customized feature extraction and data processing methodologies have been developed, streamlining the identification of unknowns for discovery metabolomics. We will also discuss how the implementation of Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS) software has provided enhancements in data acquisition, management and processing, providing the end-to-end solution required to manage the logistics of ever-increasing demand on our high-throughput Breath Biopsy Laboratory.
