The analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as disease biomarkers released by the urine, it permits an early and non-invasive diagnosis of Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) . For this purpose, an instrumental method like the electronic nose composed by micromachined metal oxide gas sensors has been taken under consideration. Escherichia coli (E.coli) is the pathogenic...
Electronic Olfactory Systems, also called Electronic Noses, are instruments designed to mimic the sense of smell. This is obtained by using an array of different gas sensors, whose signals are collected and elaborated by a processing unit; the measured signals are then compared to a pre-determined odour training set, in order to obtain odour recognition and quantification.

An array of 8 MOX gas sensors coupled with artificial neural networks has been used to assess different parameters of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
In this study, the aim was to find characteristic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of C. jejuni in order to detect its presence with an array of metal oxide (MOX) gas sensors in an in-vitro test.
