The Moosy 32 eNose can detect colon-related diseases in only three minutes.
A team of researchers from the Gandia campus of Valencia's Polytechnic University and the La Fe Health Investigation Institute have developed a prototype of an electronic nose that can distinguish between patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
The device, called Moosy 32 eNose prototype is equipped with an array of sensors able to detect the biomarkers for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in a patient’s stool sample, without the need for invasive tests. Moosy 32 eNosecan also tell whether the disease is active, with close to 90 percent accuracy. According to the researchers, this type of equipment could be available for digestive system specialists who could determine the state of the patient via a simple, three-minute stool analysis.
