Plant nutrient analysis is an interesting field for SCiO which we are exploring.
However, we have not yest developed a plants database and do not plan to do so in the foreseeable future
Therefore, further experimentation is needed.
We welcome application development by third parties. To develop such an application will require a complete sample collection -which we will not be able to supply. Such an application may be developed using our SCiO Development ToolKit (DevKit).
As with all potential applications, feasibility testing would need to be completed along with development of the corresponding molecular sensing models and a corresponding app.
Two things should be taken into consideration when working towards an application in this field.
First, as SCiO’s detection threshold varies by material, and is typically 0.1%-1%, some micro-nutrients will not be detectable.
In addition, it should be noted that building the database for such an application requires access to samples and their chemical characteristics.
Let me know if you have further questions.
