Outbreaks of illness caused by food distribution may soon be a thing of the past thanks to OlfaGuard’s nanotechnology-based E-nose. Founded by marine biologist Pierre Salameh with technology based on Professor Hossam Haick’s electronic nose, the company is focused on helping manufacturers and producers speed up detection of pathogens in order to prevent widespread infection. Salmonella and E-Coli are two of the predominant causes of food-borne illness. Traditional methods of testing for potential outbreaks take up to three days for results and involve lab fees and investment in expensive microchip technology. The OlfaGuard sensor unit is currently at the research…
