SET 10: Panel training on odour intensity with oxidised polypropylene
For odour evaluation, it is best to have a homogenous and representative panel. Therefore, Olfasense has developed an odour intensity test using sniffing sticks.
It can be used for panel training to identify different odour intensity levels of oxidised polypropylene, which has a typical burnt, waxy odour. Areas of application can be found in the automotive and building materials industries, as well as for quality control of (food) packaging materials, toys, and home care products, among other consumer goods.
It contains 6 sniffing sticks with different odour intensity levels and one solvent reference stick.
With this sniffing sticks set, you have different options for performance tests to check the ability of your panellists to judge the correct intensity levels for unknown concentrations of oxidised polypropylene.
This set of sniffing sticks consists of
- 7 sniffing sticks (6 different intensities and 1 reference stick containing the used solvent)
- 1 eye mask to blindfold the panellist during the test
- test instructions
The stability of the sticks is 6 months. Very regular use of the sticks might reduce the time of usability.
