The media office of the Russian Future Research Foundation announced that the foundation’s experts have created an electronic nose that can detect and even a small concentration of any substance in the air, just like a dog’s nose.
This electronic nose is a biotechnology chip, consisting of living cells and a special device, to support their life functions and analyze the prevailing situation. After receiving the materials, they are recognized by the receptors on the surface of the cells, which are transferred to the state of excitation, which the technical system detects immediately.
The cell state monitoring system transfers the information that it gets to the computer. In this way, the biotechnology slide can, within one minute, identify signs of tuberculosis, cancer, diabetes, etc. in a person’s exhaled air.
And the innovators note, scientists in different countries are seeking to combine the high sensitivity of dogs’ sense of smell with the accuracy of electronics.
