Ionimed Research: Non-Invasive Trace Gas Analysis
We carry out research incorporating our trace gas analysis technologies in the medical and biotechnology industries.
Currently we are focusing on breath gas analysis using
PTR-MS in clinical trials to determine relevant VOC markers that may be
employed for the non-invasive diagnosis of diseases or for treatment monitoring.
Furthermore we incorporate PTR-MS techniques in the pharmaceutical industry for direct, real-time headspace monitoring of drug fermentations to enable on-line process control.
You can find out about the principles of PTR-MS technology here.
You can also find published research detailing PTR-MS in medicine and biotechnology here.
