Syft Application Talks 12: Development of Breath Test for Esophageal Cancer

Who could be better qualified to explain the need for improved outcomes for people with upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers than renowned surgeon, researcher, and head of Imperial College’s Department Surgery and Cancer, Professor George Hanna? Prof. Hanna joined us at the 2020 European Online SIFT-MS User Meeting to describe his group’s breath research targeted at identifying upper GI cancers earlier. His work is reviewed and upcoming external validation studies are outlined.

Syft App Talks #19. Comparing SIFT-MS and GC/MS in a Biomedical Context: A Solvent and Its Metabolite in Plasma

Self-poisoning with professional agricultural pesticide products is responsible for about 20% of global suicide.  Fast detection could aid earlier identification of pesticide poisoning thus allowing faster intervention, reducing mortality.  We compare analysis by both automated headspace GC/MS and SIFT-MS.  The results obtained showed a four-fold increase in throughput for SIFT-MS over GC/MS.

Halitosis Diagnosis and Control Using SIFT-MS

We have used SIFT-MS for the analysis of volatiles from in vitro biofilm cultures inoculated with human tongue-derived biofilm prior to and following treatment with anti-malodor formulations. We have also used the SIFT-MS in clinical trial settings to measure the efficacy of a wide range of oral care products. This webinar will present the application of the SIFT-MS in halitosis research including current and future trends.

Syft App Talks #22. Closed System Transfer Devices – Performance Testing Using SIFT-MS

Dr. Mark Perkins (Anatune Limited, UK) and Alan Wilkinson (Biopharma Stability Testing Laboratory, UK) collaborated to evaluate SIFT-MS for determination of CSTDs using protocols previously developed by NIOSH (USA). Using propylene glycol methyl ether (PGME) as a surrogate, SIFT-MS detects sub-microlitre volume leaks from these devices.
