Electronic noses and disease diagnostics
2004 (English)In: Nature Reviews Microbiology, ISSN 1740-1526, E-ISSN 1740-1534, Vol. 2, no 2, 161-166 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
Rapid developments in sensor technology have facilitated the production of devices known as electronic noses - that can detect and discriminate the production profiles of volatile compounds from microbial infections in situ. Such qualitative and semi-quantitative approaches could have a significant role in the early diagnosis and detection of microbial diseases. Using artificial intelligence and web-based knowledge systems, electronic noses might also have a valuable role in monitoring disease epidemiology
