SMART CITY Radio 24, Conducted by Maurizio Melis
A device that in few minutes and at the cost of a few euros enables to analyze a stock of food: wine, milk, cereals; and to make sure that is it not contaminated nor spoiled. It was developed by a Start-Up, Proxentia, which last year received awards as the Gaetano Marzotto prize and the funding from the prestigious SME Instruments program by Horizon 2020, dedicated to ideas that can provide Small and Medium-sized Enterprises with new business devices.
What we are describing is basically a device as small as a credit card machine that, thanks to a technique developed among the University of Milan, enables to perform – in whichever place – the same chemical analysis that a food-control laboratory would perform. It is estimated that the market for this kind of devices, that enable widespread quality control, could reach a volume among 2 and 3.5 billions of dollars.
We talk about this with Matteo Salina, CEO and co-founder.
