Medical Diagnosis using Breath Analysis and GC×GC-TOFMS: Optimizing Data for Accurate Treatment

At our ASMS breakfast seminars, Jean-François (Jef) Focant, Head of the Department of Chemistry and Director of the Organic and Biological Analytical Chemistry group at the University of Liège, Belgium, spoke about using our Pegasus® BT 4D and Pegasus® GC-HRT 4D for GC×GC-TOFMS on the breath of asthma patients to improve asthma treatment*. Before diving into the blood and sputum, Jef first educated us on the importance of optimizing your data.

Mass spectrometry and the history of GC-TOFMS by Alan Griffiths

 Non-targeted analysis, data science and innovation have synchronised to underpin the next generation of separation science analysis in mass spectrometry. LECO UK’s separations science product specialist Alan Griffiths explains.

“Ideas often spark one another, and chain reactions occur. As with chemical reactions, ideas can remain contained in relatively small areas before gradually spreading outward. California’s Silicon Valley is a focal point for technology. For mass spectrometry (MS), the UK’s city of Manchester is a focal point. Manchester is where the first commercial mass spectrometer built outside of the US was produced…“
