Is your food really not suitable for use after expiration date?

Did you know that in UK only, 7 million tons of food are thrown away unnecessarily? Use PERES to check those expiration dates!

Can you be confident about your nose? Do you check food quality just by your perception?

Did you know that some of poisonous compounds produced during meat spoilage are actually odorless? Use PERES to check if food is still safe to use!

Are you preparing your meals in sterile laboratory?

Probably NO. Did you know that early food spoilage can occur just because of contact with cookware or other foods stored in the fridge? Once again - USE PERES!

Science behind PERES


Vox Pops @ Central London, UK



Have you ever had a food-related illness? It’s likely that you or someone you know has. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that more than 200 diseases are spread through food, and one out of three people living in industrialized countries may be affected by foodborne illness each year. After experiencing food poisoning myself, I have decided to create a device that would help me and my family easily check the freshness and quality of our food, and PERES was born.

PERES is the world’s first portable "electronic nose" – a unique and innovative device and mobile application which enables users to determine the quality and freshness of:

It is designed to detect:

  • whether a product is fresh
  • whether it is hazardous to health
  • whether there is a risk of food poisoning

PERES is ideally suited for people who are keen to ensure that they are providing themselves and their families with healthier foods, and to consume only the best quality products. Using PERES at the market before purchasing a product can give users valuable information before buying; PERES can also be used on food products that have already been bought to ascertain whether they are still safe to consume, thereby potentially reducing food wastage.

More than 100 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be detected in the near vicinity of decomposing beef, pork, poultry and fish, some of which can be used as indicators of freshness.  

The device has four types of sensors: temperature, humidity, amonia and volatile organic compounds sensors.
To operate the device, the user simply directs it towards the food product and clicks a button.
The device uses Bluetooth technology to transmit data to the user’s smartphone or tablet, which displays a detailed results with recommendations regarding the safety of the product.

PERES sensors detect volumes of VOCs in the sample, and readings are then adjusted taking into account temperature and humidity. These data are used to calculate findings and results.

Users control PERES, start the sampling process, analyse the results of readings and share their experiences with friends just by interfacing with a user-friendly environment on their phone or tablet.
