1/Mar/2019

This one day meeting sponsored by the Royal Society of Chesmistry Analytical Division aims to bring together academics, scientists, engineers, and industry specialists to present and discuss the research, innovative developments, and standardisation efforts in breath research.

Paul Thomas, professor of Analitical Science at Loughborough University and TOXI-triage coordinator, talked about how CBRN mass casualty triage concepts have revelaed an approach to personalised radiotherapy.

1st International workshop on Spectrometry for Security Applications (Dornbirn, Austria)

12/Feb/2019

This first International Workshop, organized by the Chemical Sciences Security Group (CSSG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), and the Institut für Atemgasanalytik at the University of Innsbruck, brought together scientists and technologists from academia, industry and government in an informal setting to network and share recent advances in areas such as PTR-MS, ESI-MS, IMS and MS for security applications. The aim was to facilitate closer collaboration in this field and improve the exploitation of novel concepts.

ISIMS 2018 (Calgary, Canada)

22/Jul/2018

The 27th International Conference on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) took place in Calgary, Canada, from 22nd July to 27th July.

This conference was organized by the International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry. The aim of this society and their annual conferences is to promote the use of IMS. Ion Mobility Spectrometry is the lead technology for chemical agent detection and it is widely used in TOXI-triage. Some of our partners are members of the IMS Society board of directors.

This year TOXI-Triage related work was presented doubly:

1st DGKM-CBRN Forum (Berlin)

5/May/2018

Christoph Amelunxen from the University of Paderborn presented "TOXI-triage - Introduction to an EU-Development Project" at the 1st DGKM-CBRN Forum on 5th May in Berlin, Germany.

The1st DGKM-CBRN Forum focused on medical mission management and medical care in a mass casualty of CBRN-contaminated patients.
The aim of this forum is to provide, via selected scientific contributions and practical demonstrations, with a platform for professional exchange and networking opportunities on the topic of CBRN-related medical protection.

Analytica 2018 (Munich)

10/Apr/2018

TOXI-triage partners attended the 26th International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis, Biotechnology and Analytica. TOXI-triage brochures were distributed.

Analytica fair is organized by Messe München and takes place every two years. Visitors include decision-makers and users from the chemical, medical and pharma industries and from the industrial and government research sector.
