The Italian Lab Service Analytica srl presents “OdorPrep©” a real-time unattended air sampling and monitoring system. This equipment, activated via SMS, collects air samples at the time of perception of the nuisance odour for standard olfactometric analysis.
The Italian Lab Service Analytica srl has been awarded funding, of about one million Euro, within the European Union Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, to further develop proprietary OdorPrep© technology, a real-time unattended air sampling and monitoring system. Lab Service Analytica srl, has 30 years of experience in “Life Chemistry”, “Separation Sciences” and environmental monitoring.
This system is composed of an air sampling device activated by SMS when a person (or a group of people) perceives an odour nuisance. The network has to be representative of the population surrounding the target area under monitoring. Once the nuisance odour is perceived by the network, OdorPrep© is activated via SMS and starts to collect air samples for further standard olfactometric analysis in an olfatometric laboratory. Additional sampling accessories can be added to enable chemical investigation integrated with sensory instruments.
OdorPrep© has the characteristic to capture air in real time without delays, immediately at the time of perception of the nuisance odour. At the beginning of 2018, Lab Service Analytica will start a large-scale validation of OdorPrep© placed in industrially relevant areas. Universities, Research Institutes, Companies and other interested partners are welcome to collaborate in testing.
