Meet The Team

Breathomix is a Dutch SME with the ambition to bring breath analysis to clinical care. 

During the past 15 years, Peter Sterk’s group at the Amsterdam University Medical Centres has developed and successfully validated exhaled breath technologies for the molecular classification of patients with cancer, inflammatory and infectious diseases. Breathomix was founded in June 2018 by members of this research group. The team of Breathomix has over 25 years of combined experience in the field of breathomics, cloud applications, IoT solutions and AI.

”It is our strong conviction that with our multi-disciplinary team and carefully selected technology partners we can bring exhaled breath analysis from a research setting to the patient.”
