The Future of Breath Analysis

The 2023 Zurich Exhalomics Forum took place on September 14 in Zürich, Community Hall, Bederstrasse 25

Over the past six years, Zurich Exhalomics has been at the forefront of research, technology development and clinical studies related to volatile biomarkers. With the first Forum in 2022, we started a series to share and discuss perspectives on the future of breath analysis.

In 2023, the Breath Forum discussed new developments in the field. The next Breath Forum will take place on September 27, 2024. Please reserve the date!
