Our highly sensitive, proven FAIMS technology and state-of-the art laboratories produce an information-rich chemical spectrum, detecting concentrations of volatile chemicals with part per billion or even part per trillion levels of sensitivity.
Chemical analysis of breath and other biospecimens including urine, blood and serum
Our FAIMS technology detects concentrations of volatile chemical markers with up to part per trillion sensitivity and precision.
Our experienced analytical chemistry team analyzes each sample through our state-of-the-art laboratories including our proven Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometer (FAIMS) technology. FAIMS uses an asymmetric alternating voltage to separate volatile chemicals by size and mobility, allowing us to selectively and reproducibly probe for discrete populations of volatile chemicals in order to determine their concentration in the sample.
Full discovery or targeted analysis
Our FAIMS technology provides a complete analysis of all volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in the sample, ideal for biomarker discovery. Once the candidate biomarkers have been identified, the same FAIMS technology can be used to perform a targeted analysis of a specific subset of volatile markers for validation purposes.
Quality control and data security
Our quality management system (QMS) includes standard operating procedures covering all activities.
Rigorous quality control checks throughout sample analysis ensure the integrity of the result and protect against contamination or systematic errors. We perform a number of daily and weekly QC checks to monitor a range of instrument parameters, and use blanks and standard compounds to monitor background, sensitivity, limit of detection and signal-to-noise ratio.
The analyzed chemical spectra are combined with sampler data logs and other clinical metadata into a secure, searchable, cloud-hosted data repository.
