Sensory odour testing for AqFresh
What is it?
At Aqdot, we have a high level of expertise & technology available to our AqFresh customers in the area of advanced odour sensory testing.
If you have a cleaning or freshening product formulation you would like to analyse scientifically to assess its odour removal efficacy, and see how much more effective it would be with our AqFresh™ technology, we can do this for you in our Aqdot laboratories.
What is the test methodology?
Aqdot has its own externally-validated trained expert panel of sensory assessors who follow a standard test protocol to evaluate the intensity of residual malodour after treatment with the test formulation vs a control.
What type of results do you obtain?
Results are analysed at set intervals after treatment, and all tests are conducted in triplicate by the panel. 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
