Odor detection system
Microanalytics AromaTrax

Microanalytics AromaTraxMicroanalytics’ AromaTrax GCMS-Olfactometry System combines state-of-the-art technology with the human nose to identify specific chemical odorants -- down to parts per trillion or quadrillion, says the company. Microanalytics says the system is well suited to addressing TBP/TBA issues. The AromaTrax system has the capability of separating each chemical compound and delivering it to an odor “sniff port.” A human analyst then evaluates each compound by grading its intensity and identifying its odor characteristic. The end result is an accurate and efficient way to characterize and identify critical odors, according to the company.
