About Electronic Sensor Technology, Inc.
Electronic Sensor Technology, Inc. develops and manufactures electronic devices used for vapor analysis. It markets its products through distribution channels in approximately 20 countries.
The zNose is a vapor detector that uses a sensor based on Surface Acoustic Wave technology. The zNose inhales a particular fragrance, vapor or odor. The fragrance, vapor or odor is carried up through a column and the chemicals making up the fragrance, vapor or odor condense on the crystal surface of the sensor in the zNose.
The zNose analyzes and identifies vapor specimens in a two-step process. In the first step, typically lasting 10 seconds, the instrument collects a small sample of the vapor to be analyzed. The sample is then injected in to the gas chromatography column where the individual chemicals present are separated and measured. The chemical analysis requires as little as 10 seconds to produce the vapor's chemical signature, or chromatogram. The vapor's chemical signature can also be visually displayed in a graphic form called a VaporPrint. This chemical signature is then compared against the reference database of chemical odor profiles.
The company manufactures and sells three zNose models designated as Model 4200 (Handheld Unit), Model 4300 (Portable Unit) and Model 7100 (Bench Top Unit). Model 4200 is designed for portability and for applications requiring vapor screening in the field. Model 4300 is also designed for portability and can operate outdoors with the same capabilities of Model 4200 without the need for an external power source. Model 7100 is designed for laboratory testing and is used for testing water and product quality control samples. Both Model 4200 and Model 7100 weigh approximately 27 pounds. Model 4300 weighs approximately 24 pounds, not including the laptop computer, but also includes a battery charger that weighs approximately 8 pounds.
The company offers several lines of accessory products such as calibration devices, sample desorbers, MicroSense Software, and GPS receivers. Its Model 3100 provides a calibrated vapor source as well as a tool for extracting vapors from solid and liquid samples.
Sales and Distribution
The company sells its zNose product through distribution channels including equipment distributors and sales representatives both in the U.S. and in approximately 20 foreign countries, e-commerce, customer referrals, and GSA contracted suppliers. The company entered into an agreement with eScreen Sensor Solutions to be a distributor in Israel, the Caribbean, the State of Florida, and Central and South America.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
