Short Course Breath Analysis 2013 and LCaos Workshop

14 June 2013 - Saarbrücken/Wallerfangen, Germany

This short course is organized jointly with the LCAOS Workshop on Lung Cancer Detection with Sensor Arrays and run in conjunction with the Breath Analysis Summit 2013.

The Short Course explores chemical sensors in breath analysis provides and covers knowledge on chemical sensors, data analsis and breath analysis for lung cancer detection as well as established medical practices for lung cancer detection.
The main objective is to give an overview of the available technologies and current research with a focus on practical applicability and real life problems.
The short course is ideal for medical scientists, clinicians and industrialists who want to get a head start on chemical sensors in breath analysis, and for researchers and engineers who want to use their technology in lung cancer breath analysis.
