We like also this comment, you are right. It's always the same problem. I only used this application for skin measurement because in history often spectrometer were used for this and actally we make such designs. So our sensors help in this or other applications to make a system smaller, faster and cheaper in case of the sensor fulfill the customer requirements.

The costs and prices for these sensors are highly dependent on the number of units. But they are in the lower 2-digit range(of dollars and / or EURO). Thus, the prices for these spectral sensors are between the typical low-cost sensor (RGB) and an OEM spectrometer. A calibration for such sensors is possible but also depends on the application and/or light source, target and specified accuracy. We support this process of calibration by simulation and optimization. Please contact our sales team or me for more details. I like the idea of a plug-off module for iPhone and we will welcome each company which wants to do it with us.

For years, multi-spectral imagery has been used in agriculture, forestry, water analysis and mining to name a few. If you consider human biology as merely an extension of plant biology then it makes you wonder why this application wasn't thought of years ago. The skin reflects, refracts & absorbs light frequencies using the same principles as plants, water & earth. I'd say it's a no-brainer.

This can be great technology. It all depends on how the medical industry implements this. It could be really great for us, or it could be just another way the medical industry can make a buck.

Affordable spectral analysis has many applications; what price point will this technology support? How will the unit be calibrated to maintain accuracy through the life cycle? A clever attachment for an iPhone could go far...
