MLF: VOC technology for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza virus detection

Session Metagenomics and metabolomics

VOC are a carrier of information about the patients general condition, including probable diseases and infections as well as medication. VOCs can be detected rapidly on-site with high sensitivity and selectivity using GC-ion mobility spectrometers (GC-IMS). Furthermore, GC-IMS are available as mobile instruments and a single analysis is in the range of 2 €. Beside many successful medical applications, there is high potential for the identification of viruses such as Influenza and SARS-CoV-2.
