Recognizes potential of the breath biopsy platform to transform diagnostics - ReCIVA Breath Sampler will be on display from Friday August 18th, 2017

owlstoneOwlstone Medical, a diagnostics company, has announced that its disease breathalyzer, ReCIVA™ has been selected to feature in the Tomorrow’s World gallery at the Science Museum, London. The exhibition aims to inspire visitors with award-winning, cutting-edge scientific advances such as advanced surgical robotics, space suits and avalanche analysis technology. ReCIVA was selected to feature based on its potential to revolutionize healthcare and bring real benefits to patients, and will be on display from Friday August 18th, 2017.

Owlstone Medical’s CE-marked ReCIVA Breath Sampler forms part of the Company’s Breath Biopsy® platform, which analyzes biomarkers from breath to diagnose disease. ReCIVA is used to collect samples of breath from a patient, completely non-invasively, and analyze them with high sensitivity and selectivity.

Each exhaled breath contains a rich spectrum of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) produced by the body’s metabolism that relate directly to disease activity. When analyzed, this information can enable early diagnosis and provide important insights for patient stratification, helping to ensure that the right therapy is given to the right patient at the right time, to improve clinical outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Billy Boyle, co-founder and CEO at Owlstone Medical commented: “Our Breath Biopsy platform presents a new approach to detect disease earlier and make better treatment decisions for patients. The ReCIVA Breath Sampler is a reliable and reproducible way to capture VOC biomarkers in breath samples, which can be sent to Owlstone Medical’s clinical laboratory in Cambridge for analysis. The technology is already in use in over 60 research and clinical labs globally, and we are honored that it has been selected to feature in the Science Museum’s Tomorrow’s World gallery.”
