6SensorLabs is producing unique products and networks to help people with food allergies eat more safely and confidently. There are 15M people in the US with food allergies, resulting in 200K hospital visits/year. Most solutions helping people with food allergies are reactive, applied after people experience acute physical pain from allergen exposure. 6SensorLabs is designed to be a proactive approach to help people with food allergies manage their eating.
Our first product is a portable gluten sensor, to help the millions of consumers who suffer from gluten allergies and are frequently falling ill to cross contamination. Our patent pending device allows people to test quickly and accurately for trace amounts of gluten in samples of food.
To compliment our physical products, we are building a mobile/online network to enable people to share their test results with a great community of allergy sufferers, creating a feedback loop between consumers and foods/dishes they are testing.
