Book’s topic Breath analysis is a multidisciplinary and innovative field of research, counting on the unique ability of the human lung to provide biofluids reflecting the health status of the person with every breath. Advancements in modern mass spectrometry (MS) instruments allow the encoding of thousands of unique substances in exhaled breath, notably different volatile organic compounds (VOCs), but also including DNA/RNA, virus particles, and pathogenic microorganisms when breath is condensed as breath aerosols or as exhaled breath condensate. The field of breathomics has advanced to a stage where it can offer solid evidence that breath can be considered as a new diagnostic matrix next to blood, urine, sweat, and saliva. In this context, the book “Breath analysis: an approach for smart diagnostics” by Stefan Weigl from the Springer Series Bioanalytical Reviews is an excellent contribution to breath analysis not only for analytical chemists but also for anybody interested in novel diagnostic approaches and point-of-care testing concepts, allowing hospital to home solutions with high patient compliance in the near future.
