Electronic Noses: Detection Revolution for Food, Chemical and Healthcare Industries (Technical Insights)
Frost & Sullivan, February 1999
Coors beer, Evian water and Starbucks coffee use them to test the quality of their products. E&J Gallo Winery is trying to find out if they can spot bad corks. They may soon be harnessed to monitor pollution, spot explosives and drugs, and diagnose diseases. Electronic noses are poised to become big business ...
Using organic chemistry and electronics, scientists have devised sophisticated sensors and computer neural networks that create a digital fingerprint of a smell. The applications for these electronic noses are wide-ranging, from industrial and chemical processing, food and beverage, to beauty aids, pharmaceuticals, and medicine.
Where do the opportunities lie for these emerging technologies? How soon will these devices be ready for the market? What are the barriers to commercialization that still need to be overcome? Who are the serious players, and how do you get in touch with them?
