Reports from CNN state that scientists have concocted experimental technology which can detect up to 17 diseases simply from sampling a person’s breath.
Everything You Need To Know About This Experimental Technology
The research which led to the aforementioned technology was led by Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s Hossam Haick. According to Haick, the technology known as Na-Nose has several impressive capabilities.
With the use of nanorays, Na-Nose can sample your breath while also determining whether or not you have various diseases. Those diseases include multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease, kidney failure, and different variations of cancer. Furthermore, this technology currently has an 86% rate of precision.
Na-Nose’s roots lie in the belief that has person has a certain chemical mark, while each disease has a unique chemical signature. Therefore, Na-Nose’s construction of a sensor chamber which contains software and a breathing tube is designed to pinpoint the disease by detecting its chemical signature on the person’s chemical mark.
How Will Na-Nose Technology Impact the Future?
As of now, Na-Nose still requires additional research and modifications. Ultimately, the goal is to incorporate the technology into devices like cell phones. However, Na-Nose requires many more years of work and tests before this can occur.
