AIMPLAS decided to purchase the Olfasense emissions chamber because of its professionalism, its proximity and, above all, the knowledge it demonstrated of the requirements of automotive standards. Something very important for us. During the installation of the equipment, Olfasense helped the AIMPLAS staff to understand everything that is necessary for the correct functioning of the chamber, demonstrating once again their professionalism. Without a doubt, it was a good choice.Nuria García Batista, PhD.; Chemical Laboratory – Identification; AIMPLAS
For iLF Magdeburg GmbH, customer service comes first. We expect the same from our suppliers. In our view, Olfasense fulfills this in a first-class manner. The support and advice as well as the reliability of the Olfasense emission chambers are the decisive factors for us, which we will continue to rely on in future projects.Dr. Ute Holzhausen, Head Materials Analysis at iLF Magdeburg GmbH
“FORCE Technology has worked with olfactometry for 30 years, and for the last two years used a TO8 Olfactometer from Olfasense* as our only olfactometer. We are very satisfied with the function of the TO8, which is easy to handle and have good report facilities.“Arne Oxböl, Project engineer at FORCE Technology
The TO evolution olfactometer and the services offered by Olfasense for the maintenance and calibration of this equipment enable us to offer our customers a high quality service (accuracy, repeatability and speed of analysis) to the highest international standards. We particularly appreciated the possibility of shipping Olfasense our dilution unit for the annual accredited calibration. By planning this operation, it did not affect the productivity of the laboratory. We have had the pleasure to obtain our accreditation according to ISO 17025 with our new equipment which has met all the expectations of the evaluators of the BELAC (design, calibration, data protection, stability, precision, reliability …).Loïc Raymond, Technical Manager for odours and gas chemistry at Odometric
We have been using Olfasense’s emission test chambers since market launch and we are very satisfied with both the product and the service. In our recent ISO 17025 accreditation audit, the installed emission test chambers have been successfully approved by the German accreditation body DAkkS, and are now included under the accreditation scope of Hohenstein Textile Testing Institute.Rainer Fusenig, Assistant Head of Laboratory, Hohenstein Textile Testing Institute
DSM Coating Resins makes products used in paints and lacquers, and is driven to low VOC emissions. For our VOC measurements, we have been using Olfasense’s EK250 emission test chamber for half a year now. We are very content with both the installation and the service of Olfasense. The EK250 is robust and easy in use and it meets our expectations as we are now fully compliant with the ISO 16000-9 standard.Diane de Bruijne, R&D associate scientist, DSM Coating Resins
We would like to thank the Olfasense team for their help, advice and trainings from the beginning of foundation of our odour laboratory up to now. The whole process was simple and trouble-free, resulting in having an effectively functioning odour laboratory. Thanks for the excellent and fast service and I look forward to working with Olfasense for the foreseeable future.Algirdas Keblas, National Public Health Surveillance Laboratory
Odournet UK Ltd purchased two TO evolution olfactometers in 2015 and 2016, from Olfasense GmbH. Olfasense have provided a great service, with efficient supply and installation of our olfactometers and knowledgeable, friendly support whenever we’ve needed it. We were quickly able to integrate these olfactometers into our long-standing UKAS accreditation. We have always been very confident in this technology, but have recently received the results of the worldwide interlaboratory comparison that we participated in, earlier in 2016, and are exceptionally happy with our achievement using the TO evolution olfactometers. We were within the top 3 places, for accuracy, out of 36 participating similar odour labs!Lucy Sutton, Quality Manager at Odournet UK Ltd
Olfasense has provided training in the use of their olfactometer and calibration of the equipment, allowing optimal equipment performance and reliable measurement results.Sayda Almendra Marmolejo Correa, CIATEC A.C.
We are using products from Olfasense for many years now and also take advantage of the regular calibration service. We are very satisfied with both, product and service, and were promptly served at each request. In addition to the olfactory tools, we commissioned GC-MS analysis and specific testing, and both services have been done to our utmost satisfaction at all time. Thank you for that.Dipl.-Ing. Holger Eich, Development Ventilation, BSH Hausgeräte GmbH
Olfasense has provided technical support since 2000, including training, equipment calibration and technical advice. This has allowed us to apply olfactometry in the central region of Mexico to develop odour maps in cities with these problems, identifying the sources that cause them, the existing odour concentration and impact on the population, which has allowed to implement corrective measures.Sayda Almendra Marmolejo Correa, CIATEC A.C.
We have had an olfactometer device since 2012 and we haven’t experienced any technical problem until now. We have only had a little issue with the software of the instrument but Olfasense’s authorized staff was really helpful to solve it.Sercan Soytaş, ARTEK
We wish to thank Olfasense GmbH for the services the Company provided in the start-up of our Dynamic Olfactometry Laboratory, the first installed in Central ltaly. Olfasense GmbH took care to build up the system and the equipment was set up successfully. At present our Dynamic Olfactometry Laboratory has already qualified a significant number of panel members and it’s fully operational. The annual internal audit was carried out by the University of Perugia in February 2017 and the auditors really appreciated the olfactometer (audit report conclusions: “The organization shows a good level of dynamism regarding the ability to seize business opportunities in the economic environment in which it operates, as evidenced by the opening of a new laboratory for the measurement of the concentration of odour substances in the air (Dynamic Olfactometry)”). Olfasense also organized a very effective theoretical and practical training about EN 13725, performing samping, panel selection and measurements.Michele Goretti, Quality Manager & Researcher at the University of Perugia
We were among the very first who introduced olfactometers to the local air quality assessment work in Russia by purchasing the piece of equipment at Olfasense. With Olfasense’s highly professional and friendly methodological and technical support we learned the technique and have been applying it ever since. We can attest that the whole cycle of our cooperation has been effective and pleasant.SRI Atmosphere JSC
For many years we have analysed odour with an olfactometer from Olfasense. The equipment is very reliable, and we have never been in a position where it was not possible to perform the analyses planned. Only once we have experienced an error to the olfactometer. The error was discovered during in-house inspection of the olfactometer on the day before a large series of analyses – with quick and qualified help from the service department of Olfasense, the series of analyses could be performed as planned and within time limit established by the European Standard for odour determination by dynamic olfactometry. Excellent Service!Ole Pontoppidan, Danish Meat Research Institute
