St. Croix Sensory remains open and committed to the success of your project needs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the safety of our clients and staff, we have outlined our “Best Practice Recommendations” for the use and care of the Nasal Ranger Field Olfactometer, Odor Sensitivity Test Kit and odor sampling equipment.
St. Croix Sensory is proud to offer the olfasense line of olfactometers to North America. The olfasense TO series olfactometers are used by over 325 laboratories worldwide.
The TO-Evolution is the latest generation of olfactometer from olfasense. This innovative, modular design allows for scalability from 2 to 6 stations, while keeping the dilution system in a compact, serviceable unit. The TO-Evolution can operate in all commonly used standards of olfactometry, including Yes/No (EN13725), Dual Forced-Choice (EN13725) and Triangular Forced-Choice (EN13725 & ASTM E679).

TO-Evolution’s modular design allows for the laboratory to adapt the system to 2, 4, or 6 sniffing stations.
Programmed to operate under multiple testing modes that meet EN13725 and ASTM Standards.

Q: What dilution technology is used?
The TO-Evolution uses proprietary technology, using calibrated restrictions, minimizing internal volume and providing ultra fast response in dilution changes.
Q: What air system is used?
An air compressor system is needed to provide the dilution air for the olfactometer. Size of the compressor system will depend on the number of sniffing stations.
Q: How much sample volume is required?
In normal operation, the olfactometer needs 8-10 Liters of sample. For a 6-station dual-forced-choice with a presentation time of 15-seconds per dilution step for each assessor, it can be necessary to use a higher sample volume for low odor concentration samples.
