Take a big breath against the coronavirus
The key to beating the spread of the coronavirus is planning and investment in developing means of detection, protection and treatment. Measures aimed at monitoring the dispersion of the coronavirus and fast screening of individuals are vital. There is also an urgent need to rapidly distinguish COVID-19 from other respiratory conditions. In this context, the EU-funded ARIADNE project will propose breath analysis to test for COVID-19. Specifically, it is developing a multiple-stage analytical platform based on multidimensional mass spectrometry instrumentation. It will integrate technological advancements in breath sampling and post-ionisation methods. A smaller and simplified version of this breakthrough platform will also be developed to advance the field of real-time breath analytics.
