Gas Sensors for a cleaner, healthier, safer world

>50x improvement in cost, size and power enables and expands air quality monitoring for a safe, clean, healthy environment

How it Works

A Brief Analogy

In simple terms, imagine a sponge that absorbs the target gas. Then picture a scale that measures the increased weight of the sponge.

An Innovative Approach

Our sensor uses porous materials (molecular sponge) called Metal-organic Frameworks and a quartz resonant mass transducer (scale).

Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs)

Tens of thousands of uniquely ‘tunable’ configurations enable the MOF molecular sponge to absorb a specific gas.
