Rare earth doped metal oxide sensor for the multimodal detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) (2020)
Journal Article
Fois, M., Cox, T., Ratcliffe, N., & de Lacy Costello, B. (2021). Rare earth doped metal oxide sensor for the multimodal detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, 330, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.snb.2020.129264

Heated metal oxide sensors have been widely studied for their ability to give a reversible change in the electrical resistance following the interaction with a volatile compound. Another feature is their inherent cataluminescence (CTL) properties whe... Read More about Rare earth doped metal oxide sensor for the multimodal detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The use of a gas chromatography-sensor system combined with advanced statistical methods, towards the diagnosis of urological malignancies (2016)

© 2016 IOP Publishing Ltd. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers. Serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is used to aid the selection of men undergoing biopsies. Its use remains controversial. We propose a GC-sensor algorithm system for cl...

Identification of Campylobacter infection in chickens from volatile faecal emissions (2008)
Journal Article
Garner, C., Garner, C. E., Smith, S., Elviss, N. C., Humphrey, T. J., White, P., …Probert, C. S. (2008). Identification of Campylobacter infection in chickens from volatile faecal emissions. Biomarkers, 13(4), 413-421. https://doi.org/10.1080/13547500801966443

Volatile organic compounds from chicken faeces were investigated as biomarkers for Campylobacter infection. Campylobacter are major poultry-borne zoonotic pathogens, colonizing the avian intestinal tract. Chicken faeces are the principal source of co...

Volatile organic compounds from feces and their potential for diagnosis of gastrointestinal disease (2007)
Journal Article
Garner, C. E., Smith, S., De Lacy Costello, B., White, P., Spencer, R., Probert, C. S., & Ratcliffe, N. M. (2007). Volatile organic compounds from feces and their potential for diagnosis of gastrointestinal disease. FASEB Journal, 21(8), 1675-1688. https://doi.org/10.1096/fj.06-6927com

Little is known about the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in feces and their potential health consequences. Patients and healthcare professionals have observed that feces often smell abnormal during gastrointestinal disease. The aim of this work wa...
