Breathhomics 2019 (Manchester, UK)

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.

IABR Breath Summit 2019 (Leicestershire, UK)

8/Sep/2019

The International Association of Breath Research (IABR), organizes a biennial series of international conferences on breath research. 2019 conference will take place in Leicester on 8-11 September. Attendees gather expertise in different domains ranging from breath chemical analysis and sensor instrumentation to biomarker detection and identification strategies, and belong to academia, industry and research organisations.

Security Research Event 2018 (SQUARE congress centre, Brussels)

5/Dec/2018

On 5th and 6th December TOXI-triage consortium attended the Security Research Event (SRE) in Brussels. This event has been jointly organized by the European Commission and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology.
The theme this year was ‘Making Europe a safer place: demonstrating the impact of EU funded security research’. Results of EU funding research and European innovation on:

Breath biopsy conferece (Cambridge UK)

8/Nov/2018

The Breath Biopsy Conference 2018 took place in the Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge UK on 8th November. The event aimed to expose the untapped potential of breath analysis and bring together the brightest minds in the area of breath research.

Two members of the TOXI-triage family participated in the conference as speakers:

TOXI-triage - FOCUS exercise (Athens)

17/Oct/2018

Imagine a CBRN crisis and blue light responders in the middle of the chaos deploying sensors, drones and using hand-held detectors to get meaningful CBRN information to enable situation awareness. Imagine these responders’ teams tagging casualties and tracking them and their medical treatments. Imagine a command and control room where all this information is retrieved and centralized for the crisis commander, enabling informed decision making, facilitating an effective response and accelerating the recovery. That all happened at TOXI-triage FOCUS exercise in Athens last October.

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:

TOXI-Triage at IABR Breath Summit 2018 (Maastricht)

17/Jun/2018

We are happy to announce that Ms. Dahlia Salman won the Poster Prize 2018 for ‘TOXI-Triage: breath analysis as a component in mass casualty triage’ awarded at the IABR Breath Summit 2018.

The International Association of Breath Research (IABR), organizes international conferences with the goal of providing an opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss important topics associated with breath chemical analysis, sensor instrumentation and biomarker detection and identification strategies.

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.
