eNose technologies can be used for disease diagnostics. One technology is based on ionized molecules and their drifting speed in an electric field. Ionized molecules can be measured with ion mobility spectrometry and with electrical mobility measurements. Depending on the size scale of these molecules, different physical effects are relevant. We studied the relevance of size scale dependent physics for disease diagnostics.
