Dogs excel in Estrus detection in cattle,but can they compete with the reliability and reproducibility of an electronic nose?

Sep 5 2012

Last week we visited Prof. Dr. Heuwieser at the Clinic of Animal Reproduction of the Freie Universität of Berlin.

He is using our electronic nose device Aerekaprobe (formerly the DiagNose II) in a very interesting project.In this project the performance is compared with human sensory capabilities and even trained dogs.

Apart from the great fun factor of this project, it also reveals surprising insights into the objectiveness of using electronic sensor systems even more than a comparison on accuracy alone.Anticipating the results that are expected to be published this year, we are very enthusiastic about the project approach and have discussed new opportunities in the veterinarian field.
