Research Institution
Recognizing the need to monitor formaldehyde gas in residential and industrial buildings,_x000D_ Giner, Inc. (Giner) will continue the successful work started in Phase I and will develop,_x000D_ fabricate and demonstrate a formaldehyde gas monitor that is capable of continuously_x000D_ measuring formaldehyde in the range of 0-2000 parts per billion (ppb) with a resolution of 10 ppb. The wireless capable monitor will have a modular design comprising of a_x000D_ microsensor and electronics control/data display modules and will be available for_x000D_ approximately $100 for the onitor-microsensor combination. Replacement microsensors_x000D_ will be available for approximately $20. The global formaldehyde sensor market will_x000D_ increase from $835 million dollars in 2017 to approximately $991 million dollars in 2022._x000D_ Sensor manufacturing and distributing companies such as RKI Instruments (Union City, CA) and TSI Incorporated (Shoreview, MN) have expressed interest in Giner’s technology_x000D_ and willingness to monitor the Phase II developmental progress closely and enter into an agreement to license the technology if and when the results of the Phase II are within their _x000D_ expectations.
