Sensors detect disease markers in breath

A small, thin square of an organic plastic that can detect disease markers in breath or toxins in a building's air could soon be the basis of portable, disposable sensor devices. By riddling the thin plastic films with nanopores, researchers made the devices sensitive enough to detect at levels that are far too low to smell, yet are important to human health.
