A GC algorithm system that could allow for accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer from urine samples has been developed.
In this editorial the author provides a brief history of derivatization for bioanalytical applications, details specific examples of derivatization-based analyses and provides their opinion of the future perspective.
A device developed to detect markers of lung cancer in breath samples is to proceed to clinical study.
In this review there is a focus on GC with particular focus on multidimensional GC as an integrated part of a technological solution for the study of biological components derived from humans.
Researcher receives grant to develop handheld gas analyzer that could be used to analyze blood sugar levels in diabetics.
Analytical protocols based on LC–MS, GC–MS and CE–MS for nontargeted metabolomics of biological tissues
This manuscript summarizes the state of the art in tissue (human and animal) treatment (quenching, homogenization and extraction) for nontargeted metabolomics with mass spectrometry.
Metabolomics pilot study to identify volatile organic compound markers of childhood asthma in exhaled breath
This study demonstrates that collection of VOC samples using a full-face mask is acceptable to children and young people. Alternative approaches based on single breath samples and/or breath holding approaches are problematic with children because it is difficult to ensure reproducible and comparable breath samples.
Agilent manufactures a range of analytical instrumentation that can provide the complete solution for metabolomics, including LC/MS, GC/MS and NMR equipment.
Research presented at ASCO on a non-invasive diagnostic test for lung cancer, using breath analysis; a non-invasive alternative to current practices.
Researchers concluded that the biomarker panels were in good agreement with clinical diagnosis.
