The SNIFFPHONE project will link Haick's breathalyzer screening technology to the smartphone to provide non-invasive, fast and cheap disease detection.
    
It will work by using micro- and nano-sensors that read exhaled breath and then transfer the information through the attached mobile phone to an information-processing system for interpretation.
    
The data is then assessed and disease diagnosis and other details are ascertained.
    
"The SNIFFPHONE is a winning solution. It will be made tinier and cheaper than disease detection solutions currently, consume little power, and most importantly, it will enable immediate and early diagnosis that is both accurate and non-invasive," said Haick.
    
"Early diagnosis can save lives, particularly in life-threatening diseases such as cancer," he added.
