Cancer breathalyser The Breath Biopsy device is designed to detect cancer hallmarks in molecules exhaled by patients. Scientists hope it will lead to a simpler, cheaper method of spotting cancers at an early stage, when they are more likely to respond to treatment. The cancer breathalyser has the potential to save thousands of lives and save millions of pounds in healthcare costs, its developers claim.
