Neuro Device Scent™ is an olfactometer designed for use in diagnostics, research and marketing studies. The apparatus is used in the development and evaluation of cosmetics, food, and chemical products containing flavourings. It allows for recording of the actual reactions of the subjects to various types of scents, e.g. activation of brain areas caused by a given fragrance component.
Neuro Device Scent also supports the mapping of the olfactory cortex and other structures of the nervous system responsible for smell. It is used in market, as well as in laryngological and neurological studies to verify the action of the sense of smell. The tests performed with Neuro Device Scent™ are a source of additional information for the physician in the course of diagnostics of degenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease), or verification of the place and nature of olfactory tract damage.
Precise examination by recording the rhythm of breathing. One of the elements of our system is a pneumatic breathing belt, which can be used to record the rhythm of breathing. It allows presenting the scent exactly when one is breathing. One can set the moment of presentation and record the rhythm for further analysis.
Compatible with MRI. Special components and materials used in the production of the fragrance dispenser make it suitable for use in magnetic resonance testing. It also eliminates the appearance of artifacts in MR imaging.
Variety of test methods. Thanks to the trigger, the olfactometer has an excellent temporal resolution, which also allows for recording EEG and NIRS tests.
Possibility of OEP measurements. Excellent temporal resolution allows to measure chemosensory olfactory evoke potentials.
Wide range of synchronisation options. Fully synchronization with stimulus presentation software (e.g. MATLAB, Presentation, E-Prime, etc.).
