Applied Nanodetectors is developing point-of-care exhaled breath tests for the effective management of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and asthma. They have developed a unique sensor array platform printed on low-cost substrates that can be to be incorporated into a handheld device to measure breath biomarkers. These sensor arrays can detect many chemicals in real-time to give more accurate results than conventional gas sensors. Regular use of a breath test could provide effective point-of-care treatment and lead to a reduction in healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes.
