Overview

The Workshop on Breath Gas Analysis will be a meeting that brings together the leading specialists from around the world working in the field of breath gas research and its application for clinical diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring. The scientific program of this conference covers all modern aspects of exhaled breath gas analysis ranging from latest developments in mass-spectrometry-based instrumentations as well as sensor technologies and their applications, sampling techniques, endogenous formation of volatile metabolites via studying cellular and bacterial in vitro systems, disease diagnosis, health assessment and medical monitoring, phenotyping, pilot case studies and clinical applications. This workshop is an important and fruitful opportunity to meet and discuss with the other scientists working in this field.
