Why We're Doing This

Every day, people are becoming more aware and more concerned about what hidden things are in the food they’re eating. Our Founders have long struggled with Celiac Disease and various food allergies, and we’re tired of repeatedly wondering if our food is safe to eat.

Born out of MIT, our founding team decided to build a company to bring clarity and trust back to the dinner table. With our breakthrough technology, we’re creating a brand new product category that will enable anyone to quickly and discreetly detect minute traces of toxins in their food.

Our first product is a portable allergen sensor, allowing you to test your food for gluten before you eat it. Anywhere. At any time.

Alex

Alex Leung

Research Assistant

Alex graduated not too long ago from UC Davis with a BS in Biochemistry and a BA in Economics. He has worked in various positions in the scientific and education fields. Alex is very inquisitive and passionate about things that bridge scientific principles and technology. He is very active, and you've probably seen his back side at every marathon, half marathon, and 10k you've been in. Just kidding. He's the type of guy that runs a 20 minute mile pace, but lines up in front of the start line.

Food Identity:  I have been blessed with zero food allergies,  but working at 6SensorLabs has made me realize the adversity and struggle that some people with severe food allergies face daily. I enjoy eating everything with the exception of cooked fish. Blech.
