Elevated VSCs can reduce breath quality. Breath Quality Sensor measures Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercapthan and Hydrogen Disulfide levels in parts per billion. The device also uses an electrochemical fuel cell and other sensors for detection.

Michael Yim, CEO of Breathomter said, "Oral health can be a good indicator of overall health. The company hopes that by making people more aware of it they can improve the quality of their lives."
