Mobile SniffPhone Will Detect Cancer on a User’s Breath


nanose-breathalyzerThe NaNose breathalyzer technology developed by Prof. Hossam Haick of the Technion will soon be installed in a mobile phone – to be called the SniffPhone.

A tiny smell-sensitive sensor will be installed onto a phone add-on and, using specially designed software, the phone will be able to “smell” users’ breath to determine if they have cancer, among other serious diseases.

The NaNose system can detect the presence of tumors, both benign and malignant, more quickly, efficiently and cheaply than previously possible, said Haick. The system has a 90% accuracy rate.
