Yanxia Hou-Broutin, a research scientist at INAC, and Tristan Rousselle, CEO of Aryballe Technologies, came in second in the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO) European Innovation Awards in the Impact Delivered category in Brussels last fall. The award was granted for the partners’ successful collaboration on the NeOse artificial nose. NeOse leverages surface plasmon resonance (SPR) imaging to recognize hundreds of simple and complex odors.
INAC patented the technology in 2012. The researchers are pursuing their work with the goal of improving the technology. In particular, they are using new biomimetic ligands capable of recognizing the molecules that make up odors. The advance could make NeOse ten times more sensitive than it is currently. NeOse could also become more precise, positioning it to respond to targeted applications like biomarker recognition.
