Presentation Summary

We are developing a simple breathalyser that will give diabetics a non-invasive method for monitoring their daily glucose levels and has the potential to replace the 'prick test' methods used today. A low cost sensor array is used to measure chemicals in the human breath to monitor blood glucose levels.

Applied Nanodetectors Ltd logo
Applied Nanodetectors is developing point-of-care exhaled breath tests for the effective management of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and asthma. We have developed a unique sensor array platform printed on low cost substrates that can be to be incorporated into a handheld device to measure breath biomarkers. These sensor arrays can detect many chemicals in real time to give more accurate results than conventional gas sensors. Regular use of a breath test would provide an effective point-of-care treatment and lead to a reduction in healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes.
