As my regular readers will know, a dedicated team in Hong Kong are working on a small device which will allow members of the public to test food in their own home for histamine. It’s the Holy Grail for us, as the only way to know how much histamine is in the food we eat is to test the food we eat!
The testing device is now in fairly advanced stages of research although isn’t on the market yet. The team have promised to send me the device to test in the next month or so when the final prototype is ready. I’m sooooo excited about that I can’t even tell you and am eager to start testing foods and sharing the results with you all.
I heard from Roy this morning with some fabulous news. The team had submitted their sensor to the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva and I am thrilled to announce they have won gold 🙂 GOLD! Isn’t that brilliant?! The exhibition is regarded as the world’s most important event exclusively dedicated to inventions and involved more than 700 exhibitors from 45 countries. Inventions are presented by companies, universities, private and State Institutes and organizations, and there are more than 30,000 visitors from five continents alongside 650 journalists from both the written and spoken press and television from throughout the world. It’s a massive achievement. Huge congratulations to all involved and I’m delighted the team have been awarded the recognition they deserve.
