We are interested in extending our R&D expertise to those areas of interest to industrial and governmental parties.

Applied R&D in Structure-odor relationships

We are developing a growing expertise in the elucidation of structure-odor relationships (SOR) and are interested in research collaborations that will lead to (i) the development of theories from which structure/odor relationships can be predicted, (ii) the application of SOR towards a better understanding of biological olfaction, and (iii) to the technology of biological and non-biological detection.

Pseudoscent Technology and Scent Engineering

We are interested in the engineering of scents to expand our portfolio of detectable substances and detector creatures. Our expertise in the development of pseudoscents for biological detection is proven by our ability to produce pseudoscents of explosive materials that smell so similar to the parent explosives that they cannot be differentiated by an explosives detecting canine certified in the art of explosives detection. We interested in R&D to extending this expertise to areas of interest to industrial and governmental parties.

At the moment, we provide analytical, R&D and Consulting Services in the following areas...

Specialized Scent and Odor Engineering

We specialize in the engineering of zero-hazardous scent simulants of hazardous materials such as explosives, narcotics, moulds and chemical warfare agents. The formulation of the final material scent signature can be constituted to comprise of solely primary odor components, solely surrogate scent simulants, or a combination of both. This capability can be extended to the engineering of pseudoscents of nerve gases and chemical warfare agents that can be used for the training of personnel in the scents knowledge of lethal gases and vapors.

If the pitch is interesting enough, we might be convinced to dabble into R&D pertaining to the creation of perfumes, deodorants, aromatherapy scents and pheromones for social commerce or research interests.

Odor and molecular Taggants for Covert Tracking and Watermarking

We are interested in R&D involving the production of odors and molecular taggants that can be used in tagging individuals or objects, whereby movements of tagged item can thereafter be tracked by canines, other living biological detectors or optoelectronic detectors. Contacts made by tagged item can also be identified through transfer of taggant material.

Multimodal Detection Systems

Our particular R&D interest in this area lies in singular-but-multimodal detection systems that utilize disparate principles for detection, such as a GC/IR/MS multimodal ensemble, and the challenges presented by fusion of the orthogonal data provided by individual technologies that comprise the system.

Electronic Noses and vapor-sensing explosives detection R&D

Interests include the development of chemoresistive sensory elements for electronic nose technology using functionalized conductive polymers based on the pyrrole, thiophene and carbon nanotube framework and the fabrication of scents and scent simulants for R&D in this area. In addition to our scent formulation capabilities, our expertise also includes the use of applied statistical and computing methods to reduce the dimensionality of data collected from the use of sensor arrays.

Odor conversion of environmental effluents before their release into the atmosphere

We are on the cutting edge of surface science R&D and will welcome enquires pertaining to the incorporation of perquisite properties into high surface area, solid catalytic supports that will convert odoriferous gaseous effluents into non-odoriferous biodegradable, or even pleasing, surrogate scents before release into the environment.

Applied R&D in K9 detection

We are interested in the development of training paradigms that can enhance the detection capabilities of K9's and that can be applied to the training of other creatures in the art of search-and-detect. Through our association with SpetznazK9, we are breaking new frontiers in detection science. ScentLogix is committed to efforts leading to the production of the best detector dogs for the protection of out nation's infrastructure and citizenry and welcomes enquiries about the formulation of specialized scent formats and formulations to fulfill the R&D needs of both behavioral psychologists and K9 trainers at certifiable agencies and establishments.

Odors of relevance to social and national security

We can create scents that can act as mood modifiers in the training of personnel and troops. Such scents can be used for:

  1. making taught content extremely immersive and compelling. For example, provide a heightened sense of reality during in-field and computer-based combat training programs,

  2. creating moods and intensifying targeted emotions such as happiness and anxiety, fear and love,

  3. reinforcing the ability to recollect places, situations, circumstances, and seasons,

  4. modulation of behavioral aspects, as a determinant of behavior
