The Whiff-Whip Aroma-to-Digital Convertor
The Whiff-Whip serves as the front-end for our CyberNose system, and functions as follows:
The device is portable, so it can be taken into the field, to be used in a wide range of
environments (as shown in the inset at left).
- Scent samples are collected at the vented intake head and fed along a
flexible conduit to the conversion chamber.
- There, a spectral gas chromatography process is performed on the sample.
- The Whiff-Whip's microprocessor digitizes the results and stores them in its internal
non-volatile RAM in our proprietary .WIF file format.
- The Whiff-Whip's internal files can be transferred later to a computer via a serial link,
to be interfaced with the CyberNose System.
