Since founding Hound Labs, Inc. in 2014, I worked with our team to prioritize “R&D” (research and development). A critical part of the research necessary to build a cannabis breathalyzer requires more than just lab simulations. To truly understand the effectiveness of our technology, we must continually test people – not lab rats.
The unique characteristics of breath have fascinated the medical and scientific communities for years but building a deep understanding of breath requires advanced ultra-sensitive technology.
Hound Labs needed to shrink a piece of lab equipment about the size of a pony into a carrying case, maintain ultra-sensitivity, and ensure the solution was easy to use.
