TO9 evolution olfactometer

The TO9 evolution olfactometer has all the functionality of the TO8 evolution olfactometer, plus the dual-forced choice method.

The maximum dilution increases to 217 allowing you to measure samples of higher odour concentrations than is possible with the TO8 evolution olfactometer.

Just as the TO8 evolution, this olfactometer can be used equally as a home-based laboratory, as well as a mobile on-site laboratory to keep sample storage time to a minimum, to increase flexibility and to offer quicker reporting.

The provided WiNose evolution LIMS ensures best quality at all odour measurement sites, by supporting you in fulfilling essential quality management and quality control procedures in your day-to-day lab operation and audit preparation.

TO9 evolution control software

The TO evolution software package comes also with an olfactometer control software to support your laboratory in delivering odour measurements at the highest quality.

The TO evolution control software supports all relevant standards such as EN 13725:2003, AS 4323.1, ASTM 679, VDI 3882 Part 1 & Part 2. With its modern look and feel, and user friendly interface, the TO evolution software ensures fast and reliable measurements without overloading the user with operational information. Regardless of the level of experience of your operators, from the novice through to the highly experienced, the TO evolution software can give them the guidance and visual assistance that is needed to ensure measurements at the highest quality.

  • Improved usability for operators through a state-of-the-art user interface
  • Extended checkup features and test routines
  • Real-time acquisition of data
  • Integrated WiNose evolution LIMS interface ensures all results are instantly available in the LIMS and accessible to the users
  • Direct transmission of results to the WiNose evolution LIMS reduces the steps in producing documentation, and avoids error-prone manual copying & pasting of data
  • Keep the software up to date with the automated update mechanism (requires an active internet connection)

Installation Video

In our installation video, you will learn how easily you can unpack, set up, and put our TO8 / TO9 evolution olfactometers into operation – quickly and all by yourself.

Especially in the current corona pandemic, traveling is difficult and sometimes only possible involving a lot of effort. It is therefore important to us that you can put your new olfactometer into operation without an Olfasense employee on-site.

At the same time, our experts will support you with subsequent training on the olfactometer control software and the WiNose LIMS via TeamViewer and Skype, so you can enjoy a comparable feeling of on-site support.
