Wearable to Detect Allergens, Fire Accelerants, Chemical Markers

A researcher is creating a portable, wearable device for rapid gas analysis that could detect illness immediately. Advancements in micro-gas chromatography in the past 20 years have demonstrated great potential for the development of powerful portable gas analysis devices. But it remains a challenge to achieve efficient separation and rapid detection for effective gas analysis in a highly integrated and cost-effective platform, as well as in a mobile device.
