SAN DIEGO, July 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyDx, Inc. creator of MyDx™ (My Diagnostic), the first battery operated, handheld, chemical analyzer for consumers, has begun the nationwide roll-out of their initial product containing the CannaDx™ sensor and App, designed to help consumers test and find a Cannabis strain that works for them.
The MyDx Analyzer is now being sold online at www.cdxlife.com and via wholesale distribution partners. The MyDx App is available for iOS and Android devices through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
MyDx uses interchangeable sensors to test solids, liquids and gases of interest to reveal their chemical composition. MyDx Started as a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo and incorporates proprietary "electronic nose" technology formerly used by NASA. Samples "sniffed" by the sensorare sent via Bluetooth to the MyDx App, giving users a chemical profile of their sample and asking them, "How did this make you feel?" or "What did it help you relieve?"
Following the launch of the CannaDx sensor, additional planned products include OrganaDx™ for pesticides in food, AquaDx™ for chemicals in water, and AeroDx™ for pollutants in the air, which would complete the founders' mission to offer consumers a quick, easy and affordable way to test the safety and composition of what they eat, drink and inhale.
"Thanks to the feedback from the 220 Beta customers who were the first to pre-order and test our analyzer in the field, we are excited to officially launch our first product." said Daniel Yazbeck, Chairman and CEO of MyDx. "With our manufacturing capability, strong pre-orders, and distribution pipeline in place, we are now officially shipping units to customers nationwide."
Cannabis contains over 400 different chemicals that can affect feelings and relieve ailments such as stress, anxiety and pain. The CannaDx sensor measures the levels of key chemicals of interest, including Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD), and Terpenes.
"Our vision for this first application is to empower individual consumers to test the broader chemical profile of their cannabis samples and correlate it to how it makes them feel so they can more consistently find a strain that works for them," continued Yazbeck, a former scientist for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and new product & market developer for Panasonic. "We believe our technology is disruptive, and consumers will benefit from greater accessibility to testing."
