This is the remarkable story of how microchip chemical sensor technology originally developed for the military to detect explosives is now being applied in medicine to discover tell-tale signs of cancer in a patient’s breath.

’Breath Biopsy’ has the potential to revolutionise healthcare for patients, with the promise of quick and painless breath tests that could help detect cancer earlier, when treatments are more effective and more lives can be saved.

CEO Billy Boyle describes Owlstone Medical’s journey and progress towards their mission to save 100,000 lives.
