The Opportunity

ial applications for food and agriculture.

How?

  • Evaluation of the grain composition (e.g. proteins) before mixing, milling, exporting or processing can increase margins.
  • Fertiliser companies could benefit from increased sales by better knowing their customer base through more accurate data analytics.

Factory process production.

Real-time information for improved plant productivity through more extensive and better detection could strengthen process controls.

When the composition of substances or materials requires analysis, real-time feedback at the production plant takes the analysis out of the lab and in-line.

Future MEMS sensors in a hand-held device or smartphone could have numerous potential applications in industrial processes.

How?

  • The composition of substances could be analysed at the plant instead of in the laboratory, saving time and improving efficiency on production lines.
  • Employees in industrial settings could wear gas sensors that better detect dangerous substances and protect them from harmful exposure.

Hand-held medical diagnoses.

The stretched medical profession and patients could benefit from the early detection capability of our technologies, which offer a broad range of medical applications.

Future MEMS sensors in a hand-held device or smartphone could have numerous potential applications in the medical industry.

How?

  • Doctors could detect some types of lung cancer from a person’s breath.
  • Doctors could scan moles for melanomas without having to send patients for scans.
  • Diabetics could wear a micro device that would read and analyse their blood sugar levels in a non-invasive way.
