MyDx – Analyzer / Sensor – Electronic Nose Technology

Home / MyDx – Analyzer / Sensor – Electronic Nose Technology

Electronic Nose Technology in the Palm of Your Hand.

MyDx™ is a portable analyzer that leverages over 2 generations of patented technology developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and put to practical use by NASA.  MyDx is engineered to act as an electronic nose that is able to detect molecules in vapor.  When a sample is placed in the testing chamber of the MyDx, the sample will be analyzed using our gas flow over-the-sensor system that supports the chemical release process and exposes the chemicals that are present.

technology-1

Our bodies have 1,000 chemically different types of odorant receptors. A single receptor recognized multiple odorants and a single odorant is recognized by multiple receptors. Odorants may be identified by pattern combinations of activated receptors.

technology-2

Acting as an electronic nose,MyDx is engineered to detect molecules in vapor. The sample that is placed in the MyDx device is analyzed by multiple sensors exposing the chemicals that are present.
technology-3

The vapors cause swelling which induce resistance changes. MyDx is able to quantify THC to within 20% of conventional gas chromatography instruments. Our subsequent generation devices and sensors will target a marginal error rate within 5% of GC values.
technology-4

Within minutes, the app will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the sample, including exactly what the information means and why you should care.

MyDx™ Sensors

We have successfully launched our CannaDx™ sensor and our R&D department is currently working on developing our three other sensors, OrganaDx™, AquaDx™, and AeroDx™, which should be available within the coming months.

Canna Dx™

The CannaDx™ sensor will allow you to test your cannabis potency (% THC) on site and within a matter of minutes, but this proprietary sensor goes even beyond that. CannaDx™ detects other cannabinoids (such as CBD and CBN) as well as 20+ terpenes, providing you with a Total Canna Profile™ (TCP) – or a complete chemical analysis of your cannabis. These raw numbers are then matched with our extensive database providing you with an accurate prediction of how this cannabis will make you feel and what symptoms it can potentially relieve. Using this track and predict feature will allow you to find a strain, or a Total Canna Profile™, that works for you.

Organa Dx™

The OrganaDx™ sensor allows users to measure the levels of pesticides found in the food they eat. OrganaDx™ gives you the ability to Trust and Verify™ that the organic food that you have purchased is in fact free of harmful pesticides. Unfortunately, pesticides are still commonly found in produce, even in supposedly organic produce. The health consequences can be serious, as countless studies have linked pesticides to major health problems.

Aqua Dx™

The AquaDx™ sensor was designed to detect the presence of harmful chemicals, such as mercury and lead, in your water. AquaDx™ allows you to Trust and Verify™ the safety and purity of your drinking water. This sensor is ideal for travelers or people who live abroad where water regulations are less stringent.

Aero Dx™

The AeroDx™ is designed to measure the surrounding air quality in order to ensure the safety and purity of the air you breathe. This sensor is perfect for users who live in urban areas or for those who travel abroad where air quality regulations are less stringent. It doesn’t matter where you are or what time it is, at the push of a button you can easily test the quality of the air you breathe. This makes AeroDx™ ideal for people who have sensitive respiratory systems.
