A next-generation diabetes monitor that analyzes breath could soon mean no more needle pricks to check blood sugar levels. The device uses gas sensors to measure breath instantly, then using Bluetooth sends data to an app on a mobile device to give a readout.

Distinct biomarkers in exhaled breath carry a subtle chemical signature that the device picks up before the app uses a deep learning algorithm to produce rapid individual results.
