Calibrated noses

As part of our odour service, we can provide “calibrated noses”. As odour season is about to start 3 more of our staff have just booked onto the odour sensitivity calibration course to enable us to offer countrywide coverage.

Conducted at the UKAS-accredited odour laboratory in the grounds of Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Odour Sensitivity Testing is an assessment of individual odour sensitivity (or acuity) to n-butanol. Testing is conducted according to the method prescribed in the European Standard BSEN13725 to choose odour panellists.

Calibrated noses are used by environmental consultants and air quality consultants who are involved in assessing “nuisance” odours.
