3.0 Breath Biopsy Target VOC Kit
Targeted analysis of specific VOCs of interest using our Breath Biopsy Services
- Collect reliable breath samples and send to Owlstone Medical for analysis
- Conditioned and QC checked Breath Biopsy Cartridge and Mask
- Standard data analysis and reporting
The 3.0 Breath Biopsy Target VOC Kits provide a quantitative analysis of specific VOCs of interest, ideal for validation of biomarkers that have already been identified in previous studies. The Target VOC Kits include the consumables required for collection of high-quality breath samples using the ReCIVA Breath Sampler. Each kit contains a Breath Biopsy Cartridge to collect, stabilize and pre-concentrate the VOCs, enhancing the sensitivity of detection, and a disposable Breath Biopsy Mask.
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 Biopsy Cartridges containing VOCs are returned to Owlstone Medical after use, using the pre-paid return envelope provided, and the target VOCs are analyzed in the Breath Biopsy Services laboratory using our Breath Biopsy analytical platform including GC-MS or GC-FAIMS.
“The ability to run targeted analysis of specific VOCs of interest and to have access to large patient populations via the Breath Biopsy digital biobank will enable us to greatly speed up the process of validating the VOC biomarkers we have identified in our previous studies.” - Professor Chris Mayhew, Director of the Institute for Breath Research at the University of Innsbruck
How to Analyze
Once the breath samples have been collected using the ReCIVA Breath Sampler and Breath Biopsy Kit, the Breath Biopsy Cartridges are returned to Owlstone Medical's Breath Biopsy Services Laboratory for analysis, using the pre-paid envelope provided.
Our team of expert analytical chemists perform a quantitative analysis of the specific VOCs of interest your samples using our Breath Biopsy analytical platform including GC-MS or GC-FAIMS.
Once your study is complete, our experts review the results with you. We provide a detailed report, containing all the analysis of your Breath Biopsy samples.
