A novel nanosensor array for heart failure diagnosis

Year:
2016

Lay summary
We propose a series of experiments to prove the utility of a novel sensor in the diagnosis of heart failure. This sensor measures molecules in the air, and can be used to measure markers of disease in breath or other body fluids such as urine. The sensor is a handheld device which pairs via Bluetooth with a smartphone and could be used to monitor health at home.
