Off-odours are a common issue for pharmaceutical manufacturers

Whether it’s a medical complaint that causes odour, such as halitosis, or the sensory properties of a new drug that needs to be made more appealing to patients, odour is one of the key parameters in the pharmaceutical industry.

Olfasense offers a highly effective combination of human-sensory and analytical methodologies for pharmaceutical odour testing. Our individually designed tests will swiftly evaluate the odour ​performance​ of your particular pharmaceutical product – anything from tablet coatings to medicine packaging.

We can also give you invaluable information about your specific area of interest or concern – including shelf-life, benchmark comparison, placebo development, quality assurance, and much more.
