Electronic Nose Sniffs out Bacteria

Posted 2 Nov 2001 at 02:08 UTC by steve Share This

Tech Extreme has a short article on the Electronic Nose, a sensor being developed at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The sensor can detect hundreds of chemical signatures by matching them against an odor fingerprint database. They hope it will eventually be able to detect trace levels of bacteria such as Anthrax.

do you live around IIT? I'm a student at triton college, and I am currently looking for people to show me around IIT. I wish to transfer there in a few years.

Sorry - can't help you there. I'm in Texas. You could probably find someone through their web site that could show you around the place though. Good luck!
