Description

Discover how scientists are analyzing compounds in the breath to create a versatile breathalyzer capable of detecting disease.

--

How is it that a breathalyzer can measure the alcohol content in someones blood, hours after they had their last drink, based on their breath alone? And could we use this same technology to detect disease by analyzing a persons breath, without having to use more invasive diagnostic tools like biopsies, blood draws, and radiation? Julian Burschka details the complicated process.
