More than a year after details about portable gluten detector Nima were revealed to the press, the discreet handheld device—which slips easily into a pocket or a purse—is finally available for sale.
Priced at $279, the Nima starter kit includes one triangular Nima device (which measure 3.5" across), three one-time use test capsule (which retail at $72 for a set of 12), one charging cable, and a carrying pouch. To test any food, just insert a small sample into the vestibule and wait for a reading.
"Nima is the fastest gluten tester on the market, letting you know if there is 20ppm or more of gluten in food in about 3 minutes," the e-commerce site explains. "When you put a sample of food into a disposable test capsule and screw on the cap, our proprietary testing solution searches for the gluten protein and announces if it's found. Once that chemistry has taken place, the sensor in Nima reads hte results of the test with extreme accuracy, analyzes them, and presents them to you in an easy-to-understand way."
