What breath reveals: detecting diseases with infrared sensors / prestigious prize for chemists

‚Please blow into this bag‘: what is known to drivers from traffic controls could increasingly complement blood checks in medical examinations. Scientists around Professor Boris Mizaikoff, Director of the Institute of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (IABC) at Ulm University, developed a breath gas analysis method (‚μbreath‘) which allows them to diagnose various diseases in humans – in some cases before they even break out. The team recently received an award by the British Royal Society of Chemistry for their application-oriented infrared sensors. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
