What is Aromyx?

Aromyx has built a solution for the digital capture of scent and taste – the EssenceChip™ – placing human olfactory and taste receptors onto a disposable biochip, with a digital readout. The Aromyx platform will be invaluable to large corporations in the food & beverage, consumer packaged goods, chemicals and agriculture industries, as it will enable digital manipulation of taste and scent, akin to how we work with images and sounds today.

Like visual recognition in the 1980’s and speech recognition in the 1990’s, olfactory and taste recognition technology is set to advance -- and Aromyx has a proprietary breakthrough technology with many enterprise, defense, consumer and therapeutic applications.

Scent and Taste Data Cloud

Unlike chemical sensors or mass spectrometry, the Aromyx EssenceChip system shows the biochemical signals that a cup of coffee, a sniff of perfume or a glass of wine send to the brain, as mediated by the human nose and tongue. We capture that data in the Aromyx Database, accessible through the Cloud.
