trinamiX puts the power of NIR spectroscopy into consumers’ hands

Presented at Snapdragon Summit 2023: trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy integrated in smartphone

The solution of trinamiX is the world's first NIR spectrometer integrated in a smartphone reference design, covering the wavelength range from 1-3 µm.

The solution is poised to transform personal health and well-being by making previously “invisible” indicators of health visible.

At Snapdragon Summit 2023 it was revealed how this can change the way we value and use mobile devices:

Molecular biomarker information for health, fitness and well-being applications

Through the proprietary spectroscopy module, smart algorithms, and a user-friendly app, the smartphone can now become a hub of health insights. trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy seamlessly integrates into mobile devices, letting users monitor selected aspects of their health independently and reliably. The comfort, ease-of-use, and safety of non-invasive monitoring enabled by trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy could empower individuals to take control of their well-being, whether it be in skin health, nutrition or other everyday use of biomarkers measurement.

"Think of this technology as a camera that sees what is invisible to the human eye.

It integrates right into your mobile device for on-the-go readings, providing an accurate measurement of biomarkers such as hydration levels and thus allowing users to track vital health indicators. This technology will serve as a foundation for the next generation of apps that will enable consumers to take charge of their well-being and make informed decisions for a healthier lifestyle.”

Running on Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 Reference Design

trinamiX Consumer Spectroscopy solution is running on the latest Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 Reference Design. Announced at Qualcomm Technologies’ annual Snapdragon Summit, the solution of trinamiX is the world’s first NIR spectrometer integrated in a smartphone reference design, covering the wavelength range from 1-3µm.

The solution also ties in with the concept of the Qualcomm® Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) designed to enable the secure collection and processing of user’s data. The Qualcomm TEE provides enhanced protection for personal data to help prevent unauthorized access or tampering.

“We’re thrilled to work with trinamiX to help deliver this never-before-seen innovation.

Our longstanding collaboration with trinamiX aligns strongly with our company’s commitment to delivering top-notch technology and innovative user experiences for our customers. The potential applications of this technology are significant, and we’re excited to be on the forefront of this new age of innovation in mobile computing.”

Consumer Spectroscopy for OEMs, consumer brands and developers

This groundbreaking technology will present opportunities for innovation across a variety of industries. Thanks to an open API, OEMs, consumer brands, and developers around the world can leverage consumer spectroscopy for the first time. Potential for creative and emergent applications are only limited by the imagination, and future innovations could fundamentally change the way consumers value and use mobile devices.

First application in skincare

For the first application of this technology, trinamiX brings together its expertise in spectroscopy and chemometrics with the deep application and industry knowledge of partners like REVEA – provider of high-quality skincare science and customized care products that democratize dermatology and helps to put consumers in control of their skin. The collaboration of REVEA and trinamiX is looking at a product development for skin health analysis through molecular biomarker measurement, with skin moisture being the first exemplary use case.

“At Revea, we care deeply about helping our customers find the right skincare products for their individual needs,” said Troels Marstrand, Founder and CTO of REVEA. “trinamiX’s technology can be a game changer for the industry. By measuring the moisture level of a person’s skin, this technology adds additional insights to Revea’s visual skin analysis. This will further improve skincare recommendations helping users to find the right treatment for their skin type, and keep tabs on their hydration levels – all with a simple scan.”

trinamiX is open for further collaborations to expedite the broad adoption of Consumer Spectroscopy for various industries and applications.
