University of Warwick – Disease diagnosis

Researchers at the University of Warwick have taken high-tech gas sensors normally used to test components for premium cars and applied the same techniques to human blood, human urine and even cow dung samples.

The results may lead to a new high-tech medical tool that provides a fast diagnosis for gastrointestinal illnesses and metabolic diseases.

The analytical instruments used in this study were the Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor and the ULTRA-UNITY automated thermal desorption system coupled with GC–MS.
