Painless Melanoma Detection Device
Inexpensive, Rapid, Painless Melanoma Detection by Skin Odors to Identify Malignancy Without Biopsy
This inexpensive detection of the presence of melanoma is real-time and uses vapor samples, enabling inexpensive and painless diagnoses. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer: Each year, an estimated 10,000 deaths occur from the disease, and 75,000 new cases are diagnosed. Detects biomarkers specific to melanoma increasing accuracy of diagnosis. Operates in real-time, eliminating delay. Uses vapor or other sample, making diagnosis non-invasive and painless. These methods of detecting forms of cancer, such as melanoma, analyze the chemical compounds present in a sample of air surrounding potentially cancerous tissue, without a need for prior excision of the tissue.
