Detect lung infections in the breath

Researchers from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, led by Santi Marco, appear in the media to validate, together with the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, a new technology that analyses the breath of patients and diagnoses with a high degree of precision who suffer from pulmonary infections by P. aeruginosa.

The “electronic nose” method, could be considered an efficient and non-invasive way of diagnosing and monitoring patients with bacterial lung infections, as well as being a faster alternative to typical sputum cultures.
