A new method for analyzing noninvasively procured biological materials — expired air condensates — using infrared spectroscopy is described. The proposed method, which involves smoothing out of the condensate spectra and subtraction of the interpolated water spectrum, may be employed in basic research and in developing diagnostic procedures based on quantitative estimation of the organic condensate component.
