Lab Service Analytica: OdorPrep© technology

15 maggio 2018

Lab Service Analytica srl was founded in 1984: his mission was to provide solutions for separation sciences in Food Safety, Environmental and Life Chemistry, keeping the cutting edge in innovative technologies. Lab Service Analytica srl became also the ”Reference company” for the reference materials in Italy distributing the most renowned brands. The company is located near Bologna (Italy).
Our more than thirty years’ commercial experience in analytical sectors account for our ability to introduce innovative techniques and instruments (e.g. Sample preparation – GPC for pesticide extraction and PowerPrep for dioxine extraction and purification): we have a technical and commercial staff able to identify solutions and provide customized instruments.
The high technical level reached by Lab Service Analytica ‘s team was recognized by the European program Horizon 2020; in 2016 the company was awarded and financed of about 1 million euro for developing the proprietary OdorPrep© technology, a real-time unattended air and odor sampling and monitoring system .
The sources of unpleasant odours are of great concern for authorities, due to the pressure of the public opinion, independently from any possible health impact.
Industrial facilities and agricultural areas are often surrounded by human settlements; accidental and, or, systematic losses of unpleasant smelling substances from industrial and agricultural facilities have to be clearly documented and recorded.
There is a clear need for an automatic device, able to take investigative samples, when such problems arise: since 2013 OdorPrep© technology was developed by Lab Service Analytica srl.
This innovative system is composed by an air sampling device activated through a network of human sensors communicating via a web platform.
The network has to be representative of the population surrounding the target area under monitoring. Once nuisances are perceived by the network, OdorPrep© is activated and starts to collect air samples for standard olfactometric analysis.
Additional sampling accessories can be added to enable chemical investigation integrated by sensory instruments.
In conclusion, OdorPrep © has the unique feature of capturing air in real time without delays, immediately at the time of perception of the annoyance. At the beginning of 2018, Lab Service Analytica srl will launch a large-scale validation of OdorPrep © located in relevant areas.
