Solutions

BioInspira provides emissions monitoring service for the industry. Our solution is composed of hardware-enabled software as follows:

  • Sensors that monitor components/facilities on a real-time basis with a significantly reduced rate of false positives and little maintenance
  • Communication networks that provide remote monitoring capabilities.
    Data analytics and geospatial platform that provides actionable and intuitive insights to end customers.

Data analytics and geospatial platform that provides actionable and intuitive insights to end customers.

Our sensor is fundamentally different from all other existing technologies. We leverage virus engineering for air chemical detection, using drug discovery and tumor cell targeting tool for designing highly sensitive receptors. Our sensor outperforms existing semiconductor-based sensors by three orders of magnitude (100 ppb level) in sensitivity and 30x in power efficiency, and creates new capabilities for early detection of leaks at a higher level of accuracy via sensor networks.
