Human breath samples can contain up to 1000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) originating from environmental sources and the body’s own metabolic processes. VOCs on breath are a rich source of biological information with relevance for early disease detection, drug development, precision medicine and treatment monitoring across a wide range of contexts. Breath Biopsy® provides comprehensive solutions for the collection and analysis of compounds on breath.

The Breath Biopsy Collection Station provides the tools you need to collect non-invasive, reproducible breath VOC samples using Breath Biopsy. The Station includes the ReCIVA® Breath Sampler for sample collection, the CASPER™ Portable Air Supply to exclude background contaminants from samples and a laptop with the Breath Biopsy Collect software that allows you to operate ReCIVA and that provides visual feedback on sampling progress.
