Applications of BeeSense: Medical Diagnostics:
In recent times, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the vulnerability of the current medical diagnostic technology that exists in the market today. Thus, a better diagnostic system is required that can help in early-management of outbreaks, before they turn into a pandemic!
Our portable device can be used non-invasively, for early diagnosis of chronic (such as Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.) & novel diseases (such as Covid-19).
Mass screening of infectious diseases can be conducted through BeeSense as well! Bees can detect and differentiate odour within few seconds. Thus, every device can potentially diagnose more than 100 samples per hour.
In addition to diagnosis human diseases, Beesense works equally effective in diagnosing plant & animal diseases as well! Our aim is to use BeeSense in differentiating symptomatic and asymptomatic from healthy cases.
Industries have to rely on stringent quality control measures to assure consistent products for the market. Legal liabilities also play a role in ensuring the implementation of proper quality assurance measures. Current sensors in the market used for quality-detection, are not as sensitive and cannot effeciently distinguish VOCs from a complex sample.
BeeSense’s ability as a biosensor can be used effectively in sectors like pharma/food/chemical industries. Our portable device can be used for non-invasive detection of VOCs for maintaining quality control and assurance of products.
High sensitivity of our technology also makes it ideal as an environmental-emissions monitoring system. BeeSense can also be used efficiently in the security industry. Explosives, narcotics and other illegal goods can be detected effectively by bees!
