Researchers are developing a breathalyzer that may soon be able to detect diabetes, lung cancer, viral infections and other maladies that often affect nursing home patients. Patients blow into a small valve attached to a box that is about half the size of a typical shoebox and weighs less than one pound. The device then seeks biomarkers for conditions and ailments. Funding for the project has been provided by the National Science Foundation.
