The difficulty of detecting low volatility species for VOC analysis technologies

The difficulty of detecting low volatility species for VOC analysis technologies

As you probably already know, current VOC MS analyzers can detect high volatile species, even when they are present in very low concentrations. For instance, in 2009 P. Spanel and D. Smith measured the concentration of ammonia, acetone, methanol, ethanol, and isoprene in human breath using Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) [1] .

Differences between SESI and APCI ambient ionization techniques

Differences between SESI and APCI ambient ionization techniques

In the equilibrium, both Secondary Electro Spray Ionization (SESI) and Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI) generate charged water clusters that act as charging agents. What are the differences bewtween these ionization techniques?

CERN's most advanced tools will help Fossiliontech scientists to easily process breath analysis data

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has officially reached an agreement with Fossiliontech through a project supported by Ineustar-Pioneers and Promalaga to develop a data processing system tool incorporating CERN algorithms, in order to create a post-processing server that shares the conclusions obtained by all scientists working on breath analysis with SUPER SESI.

Researcher Prof. Pablo ML. Sinues gets an ECcellenza Grant of the Swiss National Science Foundation

Sinues is a pioneer of the SESI technology and established SESI-MS as a technique for breath research. The goal in the granted project is to optimize the therapeutic regimen of pediatric patients to maximize efficacy and minimize side effects. For this the group will develop a mass spectrometry-based breath test.

Figshare: make all your research data count

Everyone knows that researching is not an easy task and generates a huge amount of data. However, despite being valuable not all the data resulting from our researches finally come into existence because it is not included in a published and printed poster, paper, article…
