Aryballe Announces New High-Volume, Low-Cost Universal Odor Sensor for Consumer Applications

Sponsored by Businesswire

Aryballe (,
the pioneer in digital olfaction, today announced a new high-volume,
low-cost universal odor sensor, capable of detecting any odor in near
real-time. Built on a silicon photonics platform, Aryballe’s new sensor
is ideal for the automotive and consumer appliances industries due to
its miniature enabling companies to develop innovative solutions for new
consumer application challenges.

Featuring the same sensitivity as Aryballe’s NeOse Pro, the new sensor
device is smaller than a paperclip in size, more durable, and can be
integrated more easily into existing smart sensor networks. This is
especially important for companies developing smart home appliances as
consumers more frequently demand a more seamless experience in the smart

The automotive industry is also experiencing a fundamental shift as the
shared economy trend continues to gain momentum, and all aspects of
consumer interaction and experience with cars have become important.
Integrating Aryballe’s new sensor device into vehicles will enable fleet
providers and vehicle manufacturers to continuously assess the impact of
smell in a car to prevent a negative customer experience.

In fact, Hyundai Motor Company has already teamed up with Aryballe to
use its sensors to better inform drivers of the interior conditions of
their vehicles after investing
in the company earlier this year. International
Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF)
has also invested in the
company, both in January 2019 and in the company’s most recent funding
round in July, to refine and further develop the applications of
Aryballe’s technology in the food, fragrance, cosmetics and other

“Aryballe has been a leader in digital olfaction since our founding with
a commitment to delivering products that enable our customers to make
smarter and more informed business decisions,” said Sam Guillaume, CEO,
Aryballe. “We dramatically reduced the size and cost of our newest
device to further provide companies in consumer-facing industries with
options they never had before. Now, our customers benefit from a much
wider range of potential use cases, all of which improve the user
experience as well as their bottom line.”

The new device is equipped with a silicon photonics biosensor, making it
vibration resistant and less sensitive to outside influences. The sensor
is functionalized with Aryballe’s proprietary combination of biosensors,
which capture unique odor signatures in mere seconds. Once captured,
Aryballe’s software then interprets those signatures based on a database
of previously collected and analyzed odors, effectively mimicking the
human sense of smell.

The new device will be available later this year, with the first samples
shipping in Q2 2020. Aryballe will be showcasing the device at CES 2020
from January 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attendees are invited to visit
Suite 30-102 in the Venetian Hotel to further explore each of Aryballe’s
products and their use cases.
