    The bee-powered sensor will be made up of pair of chambers: a smaller one, called the diagnosis space, and a larger chamber that will hold the trained bees. The patient will breathe into the smaller chamber, and the bees taught to connect certain smells with a food reward, will move toward the person's breath if they detect their trigger smell.
    Bees can be trained to respond to certain smells in only ten minutes. Once the bee has been captured, trained and performed its duty, it is released to return to the hive.
