Analytical Odour Testing for AqFresh


At Aqdot, we have a high level of expertise & technology available to our AqFresh customers in the area of advanced odour analytical testing.


Test methodology

Aqdot follow a standard test protocol using gas chromotography to analyse the amount of residual malodour molecules present in the headspace after treatment with the test formulation vs a control.

Type of results reported

Results are reported as a % reduction in the intensity of malodour, with statistical significance.

AqFresh removes 72% of a malodour compared to a leading competitor which only removes 6%

NS = not statistically significant. *** = 99.5% confidence
