TRAIN BEES WITHIN MINUTES
Bees have extremely sensitive olfactory receptors that can sense volatile compounds in the range of parts per billion to even parts per trillion. This ability makes them ideal for detection of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that might be present in the environment in extremely low quantities.
We are developing a device that allows the utilization of bees in detecting specific VOCs. Training of multiple bees for differentiating volatiles can be performed within a few minutes, while detection takes a few seconds. It is a cost-effective solution that makes disease-diagnosis affordable.
