This is a intresting concept, But I dont understand with literature it is a complete hardware working with human system (i.e. implantable) externally working hub? Do it involves artifical NN algorithm for discriminating between different fragrance or it will use human Neural Networks

This is very interesting concept and has promising future. However, along with pre clinical trials, field trials are also crucial in success of this type of product. For their success, it has to be as reliable as conventional methods and should not give too many false positive and false negative results.

If disease detection become so simple a day will come when you will run set of checks on your body (like running Quality check on your deliverables to customer) every week and no disease can escape you.I think that day is not so far.

Wow this is really very innovative approach indeed. This will help many patients to get cured in the early stage of disease and thus help survival rates.

'Electronic nose' itself is very interesting concept. Basically different kinds of smells should be detected. And How close is it to human nose?

Sounds very interesting. How much would it cost? What is the time to market?
