Phenosys Olfactometer for behaviour analysis

Wednesday, 15 March, 2017 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd

The multichannel Olfactometer by Phenosys provides fast-response odour stimulation on animals or humans. Applications include olfactory stimulation with pure or mixed odours; concentration gradients or multiple odour mixtures for electrophysiology or imaging studies of olfactory quality coding; investigation of higher cognitive functions using odour; and testing routines for specific human disease models in translational research.

The olfactometer is a sophisticated tool for visualising and quantifying activity in olfactory sensory neurons and the olfactory bulb for investigating olfactory quality coding. The system allows control of multiple stimuli and stimulus concentration.

The preparation of high-quality odour mixtures is a complex process. With the automated olfactometer and its software, this is made a standard laboratory routine that can be used and integrated easily for the behavioural assessment of odour detection and for odour discrimination behaviour.

The product is available in several sizes, with two to eight odours to two to eight different stimulus ports. Custom configurations are possible with up to 20 independent mass flow controllers and 60 to 100 solenoid valves. It can be combined with virtual reality systems such as the Phenosys Jet Ball. It has operant schedule programming on request and can be used with operant systems by third-party vendors.
