Electronic Sensor Technology received orders for its chemical vapor analyzers from two universities for use in plant biology research projects. One university will use the zNose analyzers to develop new antibiotics, anti-cancer drugs, and bio-friendly pesticide by studying the chemical and biochemical processes in the area surrounding plant roots in the Peruvian rain forest. The second university will use the equipment to measure chemicals produced by plants to monitor their health and minimize crop damage. The equipment made by Newbury Park-based EST was selected because of its sensitivity, speed and portability, said Frank Zuhde, director of marketing and sales.
