Technology Overview

Human breath contains hundreds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced both endogenously and from external environmental sources. To detect the few metabolite biomarkers of disease in the background of hundreds of other VOCs a breath analysis system must be highly dimensional, able to distinguish the signature pattern of diverse VOC biomarkers in a diverse chemical background. The metabolite biomarkers are often important at very low part per billion (ppb) concentrations. Therefore it is critical the breath analysis system sensor be very sensitive, able to detect diverse VOC biomarkers often in low single digit ppb concentration. The Metabolomx sensor has the high dimensionality and sensitivity to capture the chemical signature pattern of the complex mixture of VOC’s present in breath.
