Previous studies show type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients exhale high levels of acetone chemical. Researchers from the University of Oxford are developing non-invasive and reusable portable device to diagnose type 1 diabetes (T1D) by detecting acetone chemical from the breath. The device is built with an absorbent polymer that traps acetone chemical from the breath and released into a cavity in the device for further analysis. The device is showing accurate results, can be used at home or in the clinic. Head researcher of this project is Robert Peverall and the project details were published in the journal Analytical Chemistry.
