Lung Particle Collector
Exhaled breath contains both volatile and non-volatile components. The part that contains the non-volatile components is present in the form of aerosol particles. These particles can be selectively collected using Breath Explor. The Breath Explor Sampling Device provides A-B-C sampling through the three individual collectors inside the sampling device. Tests have shown that each collector captures more than five times the quantity of surfactant, compared to previous know techniques for breath sampling. Having three separate collectors, Breath Explor captures more than 15 times as much surfactant in one sampling.
When preparing one collector the amount of liquid needed is less than 1/3rd compared with previously known laboratory procedure. There are substantial savings in terms of both costs and time as evaporation of the liquid is linear in time to
the amount of liquid. Breath Explor Sampling Device is developed to be applicable to automize preparation by a Collaborative Robot.
Exhaled breath is always readily accessible and sampling is convenient for the donor and non-invasive in nature.
