Molecular analysis

The perceived odor of a product is the result of the contribution of many individual odors in a definite proportion.

We have the techniques for determining the molecular identity of molecules, and their smell characterization and intensity.




The perceived odor of a product is the result of the contribution many individual odors in a definite proportion. The identification of these odorants 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.

GC-ToFMS
(molecular description)



To answer the question "Which volatile organic compounds are present in this odorous 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 odorants at these low levels of concentration where they become odour relevant as olfactive stimulus. One aroma analysis typically yields hundreds of indentified compounds.





GCIMS provides simple and fast screening of volatile compounds adaptable to different necessities for industries. This technique can be applied ideally to monitor the quality of the products by a simple check on the 2D spectral pattern characteristic of the product and/or a fast visual identification of strange compounds alien to the product nature.
