SME from North-East Poland looks for a device for automotive bulk smell investigation an electronic nose. The searched electronic nose should allow identification of bulk materials with fungus and mold infestation, microbiological contaminated, with the fermentation and molder processes started. 

The searched nose should consist of:" sensor matrix," data processing system," smell identification system. 

Sensor matrix should be a system consisting of several or a few dozen sensors, responsible for changes of combination of gases, which happens in a direct proximity of investigated sample. Each sensor type should include two basic elements, such as receptor or transducer. The receptor should selectively influence the ingredients of investigated gas mixture and allow for a change of chemical information into any energy form, which is measured by the transducer. The transducer should allow the energy change, which has information about the selected substance, into a measured signal. The data processing system should allow for a re-escalation, normalization or standardization or registered measured signals, which afterward should be used for the identification of the investigated smell. The device, by an appropriate algorism, based on the statistic methods or artificial neutral method, should allow for an efficient identification of the selected smells.

Technical Specifications / Specific technical requirements:
The searched device (electronic nose) should be equipped with sensor matrix, selectively react into selected gas ingredients, what allows the identification in a bulk mass with fungus and mold infestation and a high micotoxin concentration, that until now have been evaluated directly by the lab employees. It is very important, taking under consideration its carcinogenicity.
