6SensorLabs’ Nima Pocket-Size Sensor Finds Out Hidden Gluten in Your Food

San Francisco based 6SensorLabs has developed Nima, a portable food sensor that utilizes actual chemistry to test for the presence of gluten.

The device will help consumers determine if a certain food is safe to eat. The device works in a simple manner. You simply place a pea-size sample of food or liquid into the disposable cartridge and screw the top on.

The sample drops into the bottom of the chamber which has the reagent to examine the gluten. The cartridge is loaded into the main unit and powered on, and a in few minutes a smiley face or frown face displays to indicate if the food sample contains less or more than 20 parts per million of gluten. The device uses the standard measurement of the FDA to evaluate the food.

Scott Sundvor, co-founder of the company, shared plans about a mobile app that he anticipates will launch when Nima starts shipping.

Sundvor said that one of the amazing benefit of our system is the app allows users to build a personal database of specific foods and restaurants, as well as contribute their readings to the community.

He added that this would be hugely beneficial in not only helping others eat out with more confidence, but could also help hotels and restaurants encourage proper practices to reduce cross-contamination.
