Owlstone Medical is developing a breathalyzer for disease. With a goal to find ways to improve non-invasive diagnostics for respiratory diseases, liver diseases, cancer, digestive health and other conditions. Their mission is to save 100,000 lives and $1.5B in healthcare costs by advancing early detection and precision medicine.
Breath Biopsy® aims to develop a new diagnostic modality making it possible to discover novel non-invasive biomarkers in breath using a platform with the potential to transition to point-of-care. The award-winning ReCIVA® Breath Sampler ensures reliable collection of breath samples. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in breath are analyzed using state of the art chemical analysis technologies. The aim is to develop tools, potentially based on their proven microchip chemical sensor technology (FAIMS), to detect validated biomarkers of disease.
The Breath Biopsy platform provides biomarker discovery and validation capabilities to support development of applications in precision medicine for a wide range of other medical conditions. Highly sensitive and selective, their platform allows for early diagnosis when treatments are more effective and more lives can be saved.
Owlstone Medical is involved in studies related to major and rapidly growing health concerns including lung cancer, asthma and liver disease. We are also participants in extensive partnerships focusing on multiple cancer types, pulmonary hypertension, mesothelioma, workplace exposures and much more.
