Indrio's patented laser-based chemical detection technology is poised to disrupt the 32B chemical sensor iot space. We are a team of two Stanford Mechanical Engineering PhDs commercializing this sensor technology born out of our years of research. Right now, Indrio is developing sensors for leak detection in natural gas infrastructure, (a 1B dollar market in itself). In the future, Indrio envisions expanding to gas detection in manufacturing, security, transportation, healthcare and a few other areas. Indrio has accomplished a few milestones:

  • Created 3 working prototypes for methane, ethane, propane and benzene. 
  • First ever laser-based sensors that detect propane and benzene. 
  • Performed successful field studies with Schlumberger (the world's largest oilfield services company) and Environmental Defense Fund. 
  • Setting up partnerships with drone companies such as PreNav and Volans-i to measure 3D chemical concentration clouds in the environment. 
  • Partnership interest from Southern California Gas (Sempra Utilities), PG&E, Innogy, Dominion Energy, Schlumberger, Opus12 and rental agreement with Lawrence Berkeley Labs. 
  • Accepted in StartX startup incubator. 
  • Submitting non-dilutive SBIR grants with NASA Ames.
