Faster and efficient test chambers for fragrance analysis
Faster and efficient test chambers for fragrance analysis – Firmenich
Analysing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from fragrance samples is often carried out in large – sometimes room-sized – evaluation booths to replicate real-world conditions. However, the cleaning required post-analysis takes up to two hours, which adds a large amount of waiting time to the process and slows down productivity.
Sunita Shah, analyst at fragrance and taste research company Firmenich, has overcome this problem by turning to Markes’ Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor.
