2017 Olfasense odour workshops brought together international expert audience involved in odour testing
On 25 and 26 January 2017, Olfasense played host to more than 50 professionals of different specialties from 20+ countries, offering various sessions on sensory and molecular odour testing and providing great networking opportunities as well as hands-on training.
“Dear Olfasense team, let me once more thank you for all your efforts which demonstrated your high professionalism, friendliness and cooperativity. It was a great workshop!”
Unlike previous workshops that had a defined focus on product and material testing, this year’s session also included a Technical Training Day, which had a stronger focus on olfactometry equipment, and was intended to share know-how on how to set up, maintain and manage an olfactometry laboratory, and help clients make most of their odour measurement equipment.
Besides many Olfasense specialists, the workshops featured some key experts in their fields, including Prof. Dr. Thomas J. Simat, Chair of Food Science and Consumer Goods at the University of Technology Dresden, Fragrance & Flavour Science Expert Dr. Hansruedi Gygax (Gygarome), as well as US odour expert Michael McGinley (St. Croix Sensory, Inc.).
“Every year we try to provide our workshop audience with the best industry-leading speaker lineup in order to find the right answers to their odour-related questions,” said Olfasense director Simon Rützel-Grünberg. “It’s important for us to share know-how and to offer actionable advice for our community. We aim to keep alive a cooperative conversation on the latest trends to continue innovating and progressing across our whole portfolio to our clients benefits.”
The inspiring morning programme was succeeded by different lab exercises, devoting sufficient time for practical sessions on specific odour measurement techniques in the Olfasense laboratories to provide skills, encourage participation and exchange information.
On behalf of the whole Olfasense team, we once again thank all attendees for their active participation, making it two interesting and enjoyable days. We hope the event was a rewarding and useful experience for all of you.
We are looking forward to our next workshop. If you are interested in receiving information about any follow-up activities, please sign up for our noseletter at the bottom of this page.
