Core Technology

Voltammetric Sensing

While at Stanford University, we invented, published, and patented the world's first microfabricated sensors capable of differentiating and quantifying molecules in air. They are based on a new sensing principle: voltammetric sensing. This method probes for the redox potential of ambient molecules, a unique signature, to differentiate and quantify them. 

Competitive Landscape

Winning Combination

Voltammetric sensors produce high quality data similar to IR spectroscopy, at a price level comparable to other microfabricated sensors (metal oxide, galvanic, NDIR, etc.). The ability to differentiate and quantify gases at low cost makes them ideal for deployment as part of a chemical sensing IoT network.

We are partnered with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Gas Company (SoCal Gas) to develop solutions for monitoring the health of natural gas lines. We are also thankful to StartX, the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy, the Natural Gas Initiative at Stanford, and the FLOW Rocket Fund for their support.
