Smell the future
Nano Sensor Systems S.R.L (alias NASYS S.R.L) is an innovative start-up, founded in October 2016 and registered at the Chamber of Commerce of Brescia.
The purpose of NASYS is to develop and market innovative products and services with high technological value, and more specifically to develop, produce, manage and market chemical sensors and systems of high tech sensors based on nanotechnology and advanced materials.
The vision is to quickly become a leader in the field of sensors and be hotbed of innovation, ideas and growth for young talent, acting as a reference point for businesses, universities and research centres.
The NASYS’ team, led by prof. Giorgio Sberveglieri, is made of five people with longstanding recognized experience in the sensor field and complementary know-how.
Our business idea is based on the commercialization of a breaking sensing technology, called Small Sensor System (S3), a new concept developed from the know-how and the research carried out at the Sensor Lab of the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia. The S3 technology has been secured by both patents and prototypes developed during the last two years.
Why NASYS? There is today a great interest for the development of simple, rapid, effective and non-destructive techniques for in-line monitoring of any kind of process by using chemical or biological information. Recent developments in gas sensors research have allowed the development of tools that mimic the human sense of smell, also known as Olfactory Electronic Systems or Electronic Noses. The particularity of EN systems is to allow the recognition of odours from the identification of its olfactory fingerprint but not analysis of its chemical composition.
The sensors are the core of our S3 system that must meet very specific criteria which can be summarized as: high sensitivity to volatile chemical compounds; low sensitivity to moisture; high stability and reproducibility and easily interpretable output signals. The S3 is based on Metal Oxide Semiconductor sensor technology (MOX), the most promising in the world in terms of performance, energy consumption, reliability and costs.
The distinctive innovative nature of the S3 system relies on two aspects:
1) the sensors based on MOX nano-wire technologies which are unique in the world,
2) the algorithms that make it a "smart system." To date NASYS is the only company in the sector can produce and offer tailor-made systems on the market for the end user. Potential customers will benefit from a high performance technology can work at low-limit detection and provide an answer in the fastest times than conventional techniques. The technology is transversal to many fields of application, which ranges from the food production industry, to security and to discovery of concealed people for border control.
The commercialization of the Electronic Noses S3 based on Metal Oxide Nanowires Gas Sensors (like : NWs SnO2, NWs ZnO NWsTiO2 and other several MOX) will start from January 2018, but you can ask right now info and quotes by the Contact form.
Please specify the scope in which you are interested because NASYS is a unique company able, to prepare an EN entirely dedicated to the customer applications.
