Top-level expertise for odour measurement and VOC emission testing
At Olfasense, we develop and manufacture instruments and technologies for odour measurement and VOC emission testing. We also measure the odours and VOCs of your products and materials. As a one-stop shop. From user to user.
As a manufacturer of olfactometers, VOC emission test chambers, sampling equipment, and software, we do everything we can to measure odours and VOCs in a more reliable and user-friendly way. Our technology is used by more than 400 laboratories, research institutes, universities, and companies worldwide. From small family-run businesses to major multinationals. You can trust in the reliability and user know-how of the worldwide market leader!
That’s because Olfasense is also the world’s largest specialist in odour measurement and VOC emission testing for products and materials. Our analysis services help you to determine the human sensory or molecular properties of your products and materials. We identify and document desired and undesired odours, off-odours, and the efficiency of odour reduction. To complement our service portfolio, we perform individual or standardized VOC emission tests to identify the volatile organic compounds emitted by your products and materials. You will be able to adapt recipes, manufacturing processes, and the selection of your suppliers. This enables you to develop better products, ready for the market.
We are the only manufacturer, accredited testing laboratory, and service provider for odour measurements and VOC emission testing in one. This is how we help you and your clients to become better. Day after day. Across the world. With more than 30 years of experience.
VOC emission test chamber system EK mRack
The Olfasense VOC emission test chamber system EK mRack allows the characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions.
Depending on the volume of the VOC emission test chamber, the EK mRack complies fully with the requirements of ISO 16000-9, EN 16516, EN 717-1, as well as the GEV Testing Method.
The EK mRack allows for several tests to run in parallel, which enormously increases the efficiency of your everyday laboratory work.
VOC emission test chamber EK1000
The Olfasense VOC emission test chamber EK1000 allows characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions, and is fully compliant with the requirements of ISO 12219-4 and VDA 276.
The chamber meets also all requirements of the manufacturer standardards GS97014-3 (BMW method), PN 780 (Porsche method), VCS 1027, 2769 (Volvo method), as well as PV 3942 (VW method).
The chamber is optionally available with a SHED functiona s well as a fogging device.
Our sniffing sticks support you in the selection and training of odour panellists in accordance with common standards (e.g. ISO 12219-7).
The Olfasense TO-Series olfactometers are the most commonly used dynamic olfactometers in the world. With the aid of the TO evolution control software and the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) developed especially for odour laboratories, our olfactometers support your laboratory in carrying out odour measurements of the highest quality.
PureSniff for direct evaluation of odour samples
Our PureSniff series covers a wide range of human sensory odour measurement methods. They allow for the standardised presentation and direct evaluation of odour samples, and support you when you conduct comparative tests.
Our VOC emission test chambers allow for the characterization of the emissions of volatile organic compounds under precise test conditions. They are fully compliant with the requirements of common European and international standards as well as specific manufacturers’ standards.
Olfasense is an accepted service laboratory of Volkswagen to perform tests according to PV 3942. This testing method is used to characterize the VOC and odour emission behaviour of parts, components, and semifinished
products used in the vehicle interior.
Olfasense offers a range of specialist services to help clients optimise the odour characteristics of their products and materials through standardised sensory & molecular odour analysis techniques.
