All exhaled-breath tests are being processed in a way that preserves anonymity by encryption. Actual classifications are visible in the electronic patient file only, and therefore not accessible by The eNose Company.
Results are stored in the electronic patient file and are only available to the patient and his/her healthcare professional.
Anonymized, numerical records of all screenings are encrypted and successively stored in an international BreathPrint™ database. Newly added breathprints contribute to improved, more accurate and smarter classification algorithms. In this way, this valuable source of information on exhaled-breath analysis of detectable diseases will be available to healthcare professionals around the globe.
Currently, a breath test for general practitioners is not available yet. However, development of such a test for GPs will start soon for a number of specific indications. At the moment, any trials for a self-test have not been planned.
In case the patient shows symptoms, the general practitioner or physician should consider performing the test, pending compatibility between symptoms and approved applications of the aeoNose.
The risk of cross-contamination is negligible. The following measures are in place to ensure this:
