“We couldn’t get more than three uses out of the SPME fiber, due to irreversible fouling. We can now do this in a completely automated fashion with the Twister and the GERSTEL system. We do the extractions simultaneously, do hundreds of measurements, and get great statistics on children with autism.”

“It’s still in an early stage of research; however we believe we will be able to predict the severity of autism [in individual children], and measure its progress before brain damage has occurred. We’ve created a reliable, rugged, accurate and sensitive test to give doctors accurate and precise measurements. This allows the physician to follow trends in patients that they never would have been able to observe before. We’ve brought this analysis to a new level of scientific readiness.”
