SCiO is a tiny spectrometer that allows you to get instant relevant information about the chemical make-up of just about anything around you, sent directly to your smartphone. With SCiO you could find out the Calories and Sugar level of an Apple, also it enables you to check the chemical composition of a Medication. It even can give you information about the quality of the food, or whether it’s fit to eat!

SCiO is the world’s first affordable molecular sensor which can fit in the palm of your hand. SCiO is based on the  near-IR spectroscopy method. The physical basis for this material analysis method is that each type of molecule vibrates in its own unique way, and these vibrations interact with light to create its own unique optical signature.

SCiO includes a light source that illuminates the sample and an optical sensor called a spectrometer that collects the light reflected from the sample. The spectrometer breaks down the light to its spectrum, which includes all the information required to detect the result of this interaction between the illuminated light and the molecules in the sample.
SCiO pairs with a Mobile App to allow you to choose a specific SCiO application from the available options. Once you choose the app you need, you are ready to scan.
