    Abstract:

Applications: A breath analyzing system for disease detection is disclosed. The breathalyzer comprises means for enabling use of multiple sensors for multi-analyte detection, means for facilitating use of thin film sensors on thin substrates that can be easily replaced, a flow distribution system that enables equal flow rate and fluid composition reaching each sensor film, and flexibility of having a variable angle provision at which the breath impinges on the sensor surface.
Advantages: 1. The present invention includes the provision to enable the use of multiple sensors for multi-analyte detection. 2. The present invention facilitates the use of thin film sensors on thin substrates which can be easily replaced. 3. The present invention has a flow distribution system that enables equal flow rate and fluid composition reaching each sensor film. 4. The present invention includes the element of flexibility of having a design specific angle (within 15 and 60 degrees) at which the breath impinges on the sensor surface.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
