Environmental Odor Analysis

Syft instruments provide a consistent, objective measure of odor. Applications include odor source profiling, landfill and biogas analysis, and fenceline monitoring.

Real-time SIFT-MS analysis enables comprehensive characterization of odor sources

SIFT-MS is an ideal instrument for simply and quantitatively characterizing odor sources in diverse industries and applications. Once characterized, odor issues can be detected immediately and traced back to the source, leading to faster issue resolution. The figure shows odor compounds identified from the emission sources at a gelatin factory. The odor sources have very different emission profiles, facilitating remote identification of each odor source when odor issues arise.
