Abstract Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is arelatively new analytical technique which offers real time identification and quantification of trace gases.It has the ability to detect and quantify the volatile organic compounds(VOCs) in various media such as liquid headspace and breath, thus opening up many new opportunities in medical research. NZ was a recipient of one of the world’s first miniaturized SIFT-MS instruments that has been situated at the Christchurch Hospital since 2005. Since its establishment in NZ, SIFT-MS has proved to be a useful technique in medical applications, and future work will expand upon these to build the capabilities of SIFT-MS in the medical field.
