The Atmo® Gas Capsule a world-first ingestible gas-sensing capsule to provide unique insights into gut health and microbiome function.

The gas-sensing capsule assesses the functional health of a patient’s entire gastrointestinal system and aims to provide: better diagnosis, more targeted and personalized treatment, earlier relief of symptoms and improved healthcare outcomes.

The capsule can electronically report important data by continuously detecting gases and wirelessly transmitting the data to provide insights into the location of the capsule, microbiome function and gastrointestinal health.

The ingestible capsule offers a potential diagnostic tool for many disorders of the gut from motility disorders, IBS and IBD to liver disease.

The Atmo Gas Capsule is currently an investigational device exclusively for use in clinical investigations, and is not available for sale.

Gut disorders are common and debilitating

Gut disorders are one of the most common ailments in the world affecting tens of millions of people.
These disorders include motility abnormalities, SIBO, IBS and IBD. Gases are important biomarkers of disease, dysfunction and dysbiosis.

AFFECTED

40% of global population suffer from a Functional Gastrointestinal Disorder (FGID).

UNDIAGNOSED

30% of patients remain undiagnosed and suffer from the recurrence of disorders.

SUFFERERS IN USA

IBS affects 25 to 45 million people in the USA and 2 to 5 million in Australia.

MARKET

GI disorders and disease treatment market (2013 USD).

How the Atmo Gas Capsule works

The vitamin-sized electronic capsule measures gaseous biomarkers at the source of production as it passes through the gastrointestinal system. This data is continuously transmitted to a pocket-sized receiver, and sent to the cloud for aggregation, analysis, and diagnosis.

The gas sensors are sealed within a special membrane that allows gas in but keeps out stomach acid and digestive juices.

The capsule aims to determine transit times derived from measures of temperature, relative humidity, hydrogen concentration, and carbon dioxide concentration, in conjunction with indicators of oxygen capsule tumble, and antenna reflectance.
