Breath Biopsy Kits

Enabling sample collection for VOC biomarker analysis

Breath Biopsy Kits - Overview

Breath Biopsy Kits contain the Breath Biopsy Cartridges and Masks to enable breath sample collection with the ReCIVA® Breath Sampler. Each kit contains a Breath Biopsy Cartridge to collect, stabilize and pre-concentrate VOCs, enhancing the sensitivity of detection, and a disposable Breath Biopsy Mask. The Cartridges can then be stored and returned to Owlstone Medical for analysis.

Breath Biopsy Kits can support sample collection whether you're interested in comprehensive analysis or analysis of VOC panels. Panels can be developed based on diseases of interest, such as lung cancer or pulmonary hypertension, or they can focus on pre-selected biochemical processes including inflammation and oxidative stress. Kits are also in use for exposure research studies, examining the health impacts of environmental factors.

All of the consumables are sealed, ready to use, and are manufactured and quality checked to the exacting standards required for the analysis of VOC biomarkers in breath, ensuring that the samples you collect are of the highest quality throughout your study.

Breath Biopsy Cartridges

Cartridge Conditioning & QC


Each Breath Biopsy Cartridge contains two pairs of VOC sample tubes prepared using our proprietary conditioning and QC process which includes:

  • Thermal conditioning to ensure low levels of residual VOCs are removed and to enable enhanced sensitivity for breath analysis methods
  • Stringent QC - blank tubes are analyzed to ensure VOC levels below background threshold
  • Caps protect from contamination before and after sampling

Breath Biopsy Mask

Mask Conditioning & QC

Breath Biopsy Masks are manufactured to the specific requirements for breath VOC analysis.

  • Manufactured from medical grade silicone
  • Conditioned and coated to minimize VOC contaminants for high level performance, stored in a low VOC environment to maintain optimum quality
  • Sealed in tamper-evident packaging, ready for use
  • Includes a high-efficiency, low-resistance bacterial filter
