Sensory Analysis of Wastewater Odor with SIFT-MS

Can SIFT-MS mimic the response of the human nose and provide “instrumental sensory analysis” characterization? To date, no single technology has succeeded in this. However, SIFT-MS has a unique combination of features (highly sensitive, selective analysis of a very wide range of odorants in real time), which mean this question is asked of Syft often. So, we decided to answer it!

Join Syft’s Principal Scientist, Dr Vaughan Langford, for this webinar addressing chemical and sensory-like analysis with SIFT-MS in the context of a well-known source of objectionable odors: wastewater treatment. After introducing sensory and instrumental analysis of odor, Vaughan will describe the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) case study in detail, critiquing both instrumental and sensory methods. The presentation will conclude with live Q&A.
