Researchers devise e-nose for sniffing out colon-related diseases


PanARMENIAN.Net – In much the same way as dogs can be trained to detect some diseases through their keen sense of smell, technology can help create electronic devices capable of performing this same task. This is precisely what a team of researchers from the Gandia campus of Valencia’s Polytechnic University and the La Fe Health Investigation Institute have achieved, developing a prototype of an electronic nose that can distinguish between patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, News Medical says.

The device – named Moosy 32 eNose – can also tell whether the disease is active, with close to 90% accuracy.
