Cyrano Sciences, Inc.: Products Our Products

  Whether you're inspecting raw materials or testing for freshness, contamination, batch-to-batch consistency or off-odors, missing a problem can be costly. While the sense of smell can detect many of these problems, widespread implementation is often impractical. That's why we've created the Cyranose® 320 electronic nose, the efficient and affordable way to accurately perform on-site analysis. With a touch of a button, smells are digitized to provide immediate answers you can depend on. It's a valuable tool for any quality control professional. In fact, the Cyranose® 320 has applications in such markets as chemical, petrochemical, food, packaging, plastics and the flavor industry to name a few.

How does it work?

The Cyranose® 320 can be customized for your specific application. The unit is trained by measuring vapors representative of your process. These measurements create a database of digitized patterns. All future measurements are compared to these patterns to identify the vapor. It's that easy.

  The unique polymer composite sensors have been shown to respond to a wide range of organic compounds, bacteria and natural products. We and our customers are continually finding more applications of this technology. Please contact us for more information about your particular application. We also offer an in-depth method development course to familiarize you with the Cyranose® 320. Our GSA contract number is GS-07F-0582N.
