it’s simply breathtaking
Breath Explor is a breath sampling device which is non-invasive and simple to use. The device collects particles from the most distal parts of the lung through impaction. The samples can be analysed for the presence of drugs-of-abuse or clinical biomarkers.
Here, you can read more about the scientific background for breath sampling for drug analysis and clinical purposes. Breath Explor collects aerosol particles from exhaled breath through impaction, a quick and non-invasive method of collecting analysis material from the most distal parts of the lung.
A Breath Explor sample is clean and easily extracted, without background material from the device itself which otherwise may disturb analysis efforts. Both manual and robot-assisted sample preparation are possible. We can provide a turnkey solution including LC-MS/MS, robot preparation, a customised speedual centrifuge and a customised freezer.
Here, you can read about the methods of analysis applied to Breath Explor samples. We perform both drug screening and confirmation with LC-MS/MS, maximising precision and sensitivity and minimising false negatives (an issue otherwise present with bioreagent screening). However, depending on the purpose and needs of the analysis, different methods can be used.
Breath Explor is involved in a variety of projects in Sweden, the EU, and the US, in collaboration with individual researchers, universities, and government bodies. The Breath Explor device is used also for independent research, for both clinical and drugs-of-abuse purposes. Below, we have outlined a selection of completed or ongoing projects.
