The Analytical Chemistry of the Smell of Parkinson’s
Anatune’s involvement in the search for a test for Parkinson’s disease forms part of a BBC documentary that was first shown last December.
Thanks to the BBC, awareness of this project has spread World-wide and the publicity has been very beneficial.
However, the BBC documentary was intended for a general audience and so lacked a lot of technical detail of interest to analytical chemists.
To fill this gap, we have produced a series of three short videos, that discuss the work that was done jointly by Anatune, the University of Manchester and Joy Milne, to show that, at least in principle, GC-MS provides a means of early diagnosis for this terrible disease.
