A very successful workshop organized by Olfasense in Kiel, Germany

on .

olfasense TTD workshop   This is the fifth time that Olfasense organizes a workshop about odour management focused not only in environmental issues but also in product and material testing. This time the organization, coordinated by Ms. Liczkowski, was exquisite and very detailed. At the end of the workshop, a hands on experience with product testing, sampling, managing a LIMS and finally using a TO evolution was carried out. During this event a 3D print of the future TO Mobile olfactometer was presented. All in all, we enjoyed a very well organized event.

   Olfasense has been dealing with equipment for olfactometry and product testing for a few decades under different brand names. Now they have over 50 people working at their offices in Germany and The Netherlands, and they deliver products and services in almost any point in the planet. For a second year in a row, they decided to take some time from their daily tasks to organize a Technical Training Day (TTD) and a Workshop, and they did it very well.
