Volatile Organic Compound Analysis in Biomedical Diagnosis Applications, Hardback Book

Volatile Organic Compound Analysis in Biomedical Diagnosis Applications Hardback

Edited by Raquel Cumeras, Xavier Correig


This volume presents a thought-provoking state-of-the-art picture of how volatile compounds are used in metabolomics, currently a hot topic in the metabolomics field.

It provides a thorough description of what volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are, why they are important in biomedicine, and what the analytical platforms are used.

It also looks at multivariate analysis and databases needs. Because VOCs are end-up compounds of metabolic processes, volatiles can be linked to different diseases or pathologies for both diagnosis and prognosis.

The authors provide authoritative information and guidance on the analytical and statistical techniques used and how to identify, and they review the main current areas of application, which include breath metabolomics, cancer diagnosis, and microbial volatiles. Key Features:Presents a thorough overview of volatile research in biomedical applicationsExamines both gold standard techniques (metabolomics based) and artificial olfactory systemsReviews all aspects of volatile metabolites in biomedicine research, from origin to detection platformsDescribes relevant diseases diagnosis and prognosis achievements, including cancer
