MLF: VOC analysis and influenza virus infection

Session Breathomics: Diagnostics from the air we breathe

In my lecture I will share principles of exhaled breath volatile organic compound testing. Early data suggest the usefulness of GC-MS. Side products generated within infected cells vary based on viral species. Thus, the VOCs elaborated by the cell are likewise predicted to vary based on the infecting viral species. Data from a recent study in influenza patients will be presented, test accuracy is calculated to be 78%.
