Elevator Pitch

Elevator Pitch

C2Sense was founded to develop simple, inexpensive, and easy-to-integrate sensing solutions to bridge the gap between the chemical world and the digital world. The company develops sensing solutions for authentication, product viability assurance, and pathogen detection to reduce loss and harm for its customers in the food packaging, shipping, pharmaceutical, and luxury goods sectors.


C2Sense is currently working to bring two products to market:

AuthenTags™️ will revolutionize the global market for brand protection and product packaging by providing counterfeit detection and product quality information from the point of manufacturing out to the customer. Discretely printed onto or included in packaging, AuthenTags are safe, versatile molecular tags that securely protect the brand and the consumer. They identify counterfeits and, where required, they are designed to react to problems encountered in the distribution chain (temperature change, oxygen sensing, and other changes in the air). AuthenTags work equally well on products as small as a pill, mixed into liquids or applied to just about any surface (glass, plastic, leather, metals, and cardboard).

Halo Environmental combines C2ense’s molecular sensing technology with a wide range of Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs) to deliver a portfolio of solutions to identify pathogens in food, wastewater, and the environment. This allows customers to respond with the appropriate measures to contain or eradicate any pathogens quickly and efficiently. This makes Halo well suited for high-throughput scenarios like food-packaging and distribution, public transportation, wastewater plants, and schools.
