Smartphone Detection

Technology to detect disease in human breath could be coming to your smartphone   Dogs can smell things that humans cannot … like happiness, anger, stress and pregnancy. That’s the idea behind a new kind of breathalyser — one that would be much smaller and more sensitive than those used by police on the side of the road. Dr Noushin Nasiri, a material engineer at the Institute for Biomedical Materials & Devices (IBMD), School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, UTS is trying to develop what would be the world’s smallest sensor for detecting disease in a person’s breath.
