Sniff-0 | Olfactometer

Scientific Research / Cognitive science


Sniff-0 is an olfactometer with a brand-new innovative design, feature rich, multichannel, high-speed, accurate and easily transportable in the form of a normal suitcase. The number of channels can be customized up to a maximum of 13 + 1 for a single unit, while “tailor made” versions can also be created according to your needs: multiple daisy chain connected devices can expand capabilities to fulfil any research need!

Thanks to a standard controller combined with highly optimized proprietary electronics, Sniff-0 can provide complete control of your experiments, ensuring speed, accuracy, and reliability. Some additional features such as automated proportional valves, the measurement of propagation delays and channel-by-channel auto-calibration of the system drastically reduce configuration times and ensure maximum repeatability of experimental protocols. Compatibility with the most common programming platforms (e.g. MatLab®, Octave, EPrime®, LabView®, PsychoPy) and the integrated digital input / output trigger channels allow you to design experiments in complete freedom.

Sniff-0 can be used independently and requires only a standard PC with USB interface (it supports all operating systems), a standard power plug and a source of clean oil-free compressed air (at approx. 3 bar). Alternatively, it can be coupled to Spir-0 to monitor and record the respiratory activity of the subject and synchronize the activation of odour channels to these, or to Sniff-Exp thus offering two more independent channels with different gases.

Sniff-0 is a great piece of equipment and was additionally customised to meet our specific needs. The Customer Support is always quick to respond to any queries and goes the extra mile to help us achieve our goals.
