Disposable Sampling Plate and Breath Test to Identify Patients with Active Tuberculosis

James E. Graham, Xiao-­An Fu, Michael H. Nantz, and Richard M. Higashi of the University of Louisville in the U.S. will investigate the use of adsorptive sample plates with chemically reactive coatings to capture, identify, and validate unique volatile organic compounds found in breath samples of TB patients. This approach can establish the basis for a simple point of care test to identify active disease.
