A new exhaled breath sensor from the team at KAIST can identify the biomarkers for sixteen different diseases.
While breath sensors can be very useful in detecting disease, the amount of water and different gasses in the breath make it difficult to detect low concentrations of disease biomarkers. To better take advantage of this promising technology, the team from KAIST created a prototype device that relies on protein-encapsulated nanocatalysts and more powerful sensing layers.
In tests, the new biosensing device performed 3 to 4 times better than conventional devices, offering “the best performance ever reported in literature.”
