In Chinese medicine, there are four major methods for diagnosis: observation, auscultation and olfaction, interrogation and pulse feeling and palpation. "Sniffing" is an important method for diagnosis. We developed an artificial olfactory technique, also called "electronic noses" to detect and identify disease. The electronic nose is a simple and repeatable "sniffing" device. In tradition, the instruments (such as gas chromatography (GC-MS), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy) are applied to analysis gas. We have to take the gas sample back to lab. To operate these instruments lacks "immediateness" and "universality." Therefore, immediate, reliable, fast and small device is very important. Our “Electronic nose” is a real-time odor detection and identification system, which consisted of several sensors into an array of sensors. When the odor flow in, each of the odors generate a specific odor pattern such as finger printer.
