We haven’t fully tested GMOs, and as Hagai mentioned – we don’t currently expect it to be possible to differentiate between GMO and non-GMO due to the lack of substantial differences between the samples on a molecular level.
We do plan to conduct more thorough testing on this issue in the future though, as many of our backers and supporters are as interested in GMO detection as you are.
Currently, there is no published list of application under development but we can share that SCiO consumer app, which will soon be released will include:
– A number of food nutrition analysis applets, for example analyzing the nutritional values of dairy products.
– Identification applets, such as the ability to identify and analyze pills.
– An application that allows you to work with the spectrometer by collecting material data and building analysis applets for your own materials.
After SCiO consumer app is released, new applications will be developed and released regularly. Some of the applications planned for development include an evaluation of produce, sugar and ethanol content in drinks. At the same time, we will continue to broaden our existing application databases, such as increasing the number of pills (which already stands at +/- 250 OTC pills). Additional applications are also under research, such as ones for breads and body fat percentage.
