Biomedical

SIFT-MS has diverse biomedical research applications from breath research to headspace analysis of microbes, body fluids and tissues.

Volatile compounds, individually or as a profilecan indicate health status of humans and other organisms.

SIFT-MS speeds up analysis time in both breath research and microbial metabolic process profiling.  Breath research data can be used for population screening and to monitor temporal changes in breath volatiles.

High-sensitivity, direct analysis of diverse breath biomarkers

SIFT-MS provides rapid, high-sensitivity analysis of VOCs and inorganic gases on breath with no sample preparation and no compound discrimination, making it ideal for breath research applications.

Benefits include:

  • Real-time analysis of individual breath exhalations
  • Analytical results unaffected by sample humidity – no sample drying is required
  • Very wide linear and dynamic range
  • Flexibility – analyze directly or via sampling media, such as sampling bags

Applications of SIFT-MS-based breath analysis include:

  • Disease marker screening
  • Kidney medicine
  • Non-invasive diabetes screening
  • Respiratory medicine
  • Intensive care medicine
  • Monitoring anesthetics during surgery
