Summary
Use of a microfabricated silicon device to concentrate ultra trace volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in human exhaled breath for quantitative analysis of VOCs.
Detailed Description
Will use Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry (FT-MS) and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to analyze concentrated VOCs. The purpose of this study is to search for disease-related markers in the breath in subjects with known or suspected lung or other cancer, or pulmonary disease.
