NaNose chip in Breathalyzer test may detect deadliest cancer

the ONA take:

A new device developed by a team of Israeli, American, and British cancer researchers may both accurately detect lung cancer and identify its stage of progression. The breathalyzer test is embedded with a “NaNose” nanotech chip that literally sniffs out cancer tumors. Lung cancer tumors produce chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which easily evaporate into the air and produce a discernible scent profile. Using nanotechnology, the developers created the highly sensitive NaNose chip. The chip detects the unique signature of VOCs in exhaled breath. In 4 of 5 cases, the device was able to differentiate between benign and malignant lung lesions and even different cancer subtypes. Alpha Szenszor has licensed the technology and hopes to introduce it to the market within the next few years.
