We use leading edge analytical methods, combined with trained human noses to unravel the molecular origin of odours and pinpoint the odour relevant compounds.
To answer the question "Which volatile organic compounds are present in this odourous gas and what is their abundance in the aroma mixture?" we offer GC-ToFMS. Our lab can detect and identify compounds at very low concentrations (ppt levels), just like the human nose.
We can detect odourants at these low levels of concentration where they become odour relevant as olfactive stimulus.
The perceived odour of a product is the result of the contribution many individual odours in a definite proportion.
The identification of these odourants need a chemical detector able to determine the molecular identity and an olfactory detector who determine the molecules smell or not and what do they smell.
GC-Sniffing combines both detection system in a single analysis.
