MyDx (My Diagnostic) is the worlds first portable analyzer for everyone. It's a simple and affordable device that can detect the chemicals we cannot see.
Empower everyone to Trust and Verify what we put into our minds & bodies.
What Can I Test?
Here is a list of the sensors that are being developed as interchangeable sensors, that will be compatible with the MyDx Mulit-Use Analyzer Platform.
How Does MyDx Work?
MyDx allows you to test samples of solids, liquids and gases in 3 simple steps.
It's really that simple. You now have an in-depth analysis of your sample within a matter of seconds viewable through an iOS or Android App. The app tells you exactly what the information means and why you should care.
Why Should I Care?
Our ORGANA and AQUA sensor will help you Trust and Verify the level of pesticides found in the food you eat and the water you drink. This is especially important when buying non-organic foods that are typically high in pesticides, referred to as "The Dirty Dozen".
Our AERO Sensor will measure the air quality index, an indicator developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and used by people worldwide to avoid unsafe air conditions by monitoring certain chemicals in the air.
In the News
Bloomberg - "It's a tool that will not only educate but will also empower people with healthier lives by knowing what's in everything they eat, drink and inhale."
MSN - "MyDx provides a portable testing kit that can be used in all kinds of situations, measuring the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat and more."
THC Biz - "The CDx team has created a product that compliments the use of medical marijuana in order to help people in need, such as cancer patients. Consumers can finally learn and understand exactly what and how much they are putting in their bodies."
Medical Jane - "MyDx will fit in the palm of your hands, while possessing the ability to perform as a gas chromatography lab testing device."
PR Web - "CDx and AZ Med are collaborating to use the MyDx analyzer platform side by side with in house laboratory equipment to compare data and ensure the results of the MyDx analyzer are in line with laboratory standards."
Biospace - "What people are inhaling today is more or less a black box. MyDx is a device that will improve consumer's health and empower an industry with the science it deserves to achieve true and practical quality control."

Please Welcome our Debut Sensor and Diagnostic Application:
Designed to Test for the Safety and Potency of Cannabis/Medical Marijuana Samples.
Over the course of the next 24 months, the MyDx team will be rolling out the 4 different sensors, the first of which is the Canna Sensor. Designed to test for the safety and potency of Cannabis, the Canna sensor is programmed to detect the presence of the most important compounds of interest in Cannabis, including THC and CBD.
Early studies have shown that cannabis may be used to help suppress tumor cell growth, relieve pain and increase energy in cancer patients, reduce seizure episodes in epileptic patients, alleviate stress and anxiety for insomnia sufferers and much, much more. 20 states and several countries have now legalized the use of medicinal marijuana. Through legalization comes new regulations and interest in how different strains affect each individual, and this is where we come in.
When presented with a sample of cannabis, MyDx will deliver a strain analysis revealing the abundance of medically relevant cannabinoids such as THC & CBD, whose ratios have been shown to play a key role in how a specific strain makes people feel. The Canna sensor is also being programmed to look for a class of compounds known as the "terpenoids", which give each strain of cannabis its unique smell, and in synergy with the other compounds found in Cannabis, further contribute to the overall medical effect of the plant.
The MyDx App will combine science, engineering, pattern recognition and your feedback to start tracking how each chemical profile effects You. We comply with all application state and federal privacy laws to secure personal impressions and our goal is to empower consumers to create a private personalized profile that defines our ideal strain until our doctors are empowered with the tools to help us better define that profile.
Empowering An Industry
It is important to note that we chose to deliver our first sensor for MyDx to the cannabis world because it needs a friend in Science and Technology more than any other industry today. Our ultimate goal is to empower the industry manufacturers, distributors, consumers and regulators to understand exactly what is in each strain of cannabis from seed to sale, and how it has been shown to affect individuals to advance the science and the people.
MyDx leverages over 2 generation of technology developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and used by NASA. Acting as an electronic nose, MyDx is engineered to detect molecules in vapor. The sample that is placed in the MyDx device is analyzed by multiple sensors exposing the chemicals that are present.
For you technical folks out there, the first generation target for MyDx is to be able to quantify chemicals to within 20% of conventional gas chromatography (GC) instrument values. Our subsequent generation devices and sensors will target a marginal error rate of within 5% of GC values.
To date, the sensors that will be compatible with the MyDx Platform that are currently being developed with our esteemed collaborators can do the following:
- Breath based detection of active pulmonary tuberculosis in the field with high sensitivity and specificity with real patients.
- Toxic industrial chemical identification using a handheld detector.
- Readily detect representative organophosphates, the functional group associated with certain pesticides, at parts per million levels.
- Readily distinguish simulated samples of cannabis strains.
- Quantitatively measure simulated cannabinoids samples, including THC and CBD.
- Quantitatively measure certain compounds in cannabis such as the terpenoid Myrcene.
- Vaporize and Analyze certain pesticides such as 2,4-D.
- Detect carbon monoxide (CO), sulfure dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NO), and ozone (O3) to measure the Air Quality Index.
Now, we need to continue to optimize our sensors for our applications, provide the best user experience possible for our existing software, build our strain database with our collaborators, and transition to full scale production that will help us achieve enough volumes to hit the future target price to the consumer.
With the support of our investors and the crowd we are very confident we can achieve all of the above goals and we anticipate we will start shipping round one of the pre-orders by Christmas of 2014, so we sincerely thank you in advance for your early support of this project.
