The team's research, which was published in the journal ACS Nano , used breath samples collected from 1404 subjects, each of which were previously diagnosed as having one of 17 different disease conditions, and used "an artificially intelligent nanoarray based on molecularly modified gold nanoparticles and a random network of single-walled carbon nanotubes" to detect and quantify chemical compounds in the ...
