trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy
We integrate near-infrared spectroscopy into smartphones
trinamiX is taking mobile NIR spectroscopy a huge step further: by seamlessly integrating the technology into smartphones. With our miniaturized NIR module, we provide molecular sensing in a revolutionary small form factor. Now, we have built this module into a first smartphone: We have worked with Qualcomm Technologies and trinamiX Consumer Spectroscpy is running on the Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 reference design phone.
Learn more about the presentation of the solution at the Snapdragon Summit 2023.
The development of spectroscopy: From tabletop device to trinamiX mobile solution to trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy running on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 reference design
Our spectroscopy solution for consumers
trinamiX’s solution is the unique combination of a miniaturized spectrometer and consumer applications. Our hardware module is small enough to fit into current consumer electronics while providing a full spectroscopic design. Performing a measurement will be as easy as pointing the smartphone to the skin. Based on these individual analyses, a user app provides real-time insights and tailored advice on how to improve the personal health and fitness condition.

Our application roadmap
To this day, many relevant biomarkers (molecular indicators of a certain health condition such as hydration and lactate) can only be measured by puncture and lab analysis. These measurements can not only be inconvenient and time-consuming but also come with a crucial drawback: The measurement results are always delayed and can thus never reflect the actual status quo at a particular moment in time.
Our roadmap for mobile, non-invasive measurements includes:
- Hydration - an indicator for sufficient water intake and well-being.
- Lactate - an indicator for muscular performance
- Prediabes diagnostics - an indicator for prolonged elevated glucose levels
