Bio-fluids are the source of a large number of metabolites. Identification and quantification of them can be an efficient step for understanding the internal chemistry of the body as well as for developing objective diagnostics of diseases. Several techniques have been developed so far;however, their metabolite identification and/or quantification are not reliable enough for acceptance by clinicians. As another promising step in this direction, we push infrared spectroscopy of bio-fluids in gas phase. Here we discuss features of breath and urine headspace realized with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Molecular identification procedures based on component analysis of gas samples are proposed. In this paper, we show that aggregate data from different bio-fluids in gas phase can strengthen the diagnostics of the body state and disease. (C) 2020 Optical Society of America
