Israel21c reports that a new handheld sensor designed by Israeli innovators can help people with food allergies by detecting the common allergens from a small food sample.

“I have 15 years of experience in R&D at Apple, Intel and PrimeSense, so I started to think of how to build a sensor that lets you test food for allergens before you eat — anywhere, anytime,” Yasovsky tells ISRAEL21c.

His startup, SensoGenic, is developing a handheld digital food allergen biosensor for consumers.

It’s the only such device capable of detecting and identifying all the common allergens — milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish — from a single food sample placed on a disposable pad and analyzed by the battery-operated biosensor unit.
