The Canterbury-based Bowel and Liver Trust (B<) is a strong advocate for improving diagnosis, survival outcomes, and quality of life for people suffering from a diverse range of gut conditions. To achieve this end, the B< actively fundraises to support research into gut diseases in addition to funding start-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.
Researchers at the Christchurch School of Medicine (a department of the University of Otago’s medical school) have a long-standing desire to utilize the rapid, sensitive analysis of SIFT-MS to identify breath markers for a range of gut diseases.
Last week Syft supported the B< in its fundraising efforts for a Syft Voice200ultra SIFT-MS instrument by deploying an instrument and staff to a local shopping center to raise awareness of the trust and its desire for additional research capability. Syft supports the B<’s desire for better outcomes for those suffering from gut diseases and SIFT-MS technology has unique opportunity to provide earlier diagnosis.
