Burghart Sniffin’ Sticks – Discrimination Test
The ODOFIN Sniffin’ Sticks discrimination test is used for discrimination of odours. This is based on the comparison of 3 smell presentations (triplet). To this end, two times the same odour is presented (non-target) and one time a different smelling one (target). The subject’s task is to indicate which one smells different. This comparison is performed for 16 triplets.
Discrimination smell test
The question which has to be asked with this test is: How well can you distinguish smells from one another? Repeatedly, three pens will be presented to you one after another. Two of these contain the same odorant; a third one contains a different smell. You have to indicate the pen that smells different. In any case, you have to pick one of the
three pens, even if you are not sure with your decision.

The complete test comes with a instruction manual, evaluation material and holder as seen on the picture above. The holder is only needed once. If the test has to be renewed, a refill set can be ordered which is cheaper than a whole test. The tests can also be purchased separately.
Cotton gloves and a sleeping mask can be purchased separately.
Each test contains 3 x 16 = 48 odour pens.
Each stick is labelled with a best before date. Due to hygiene reasons we cannot accept returns of the sticks.
Refill sets are also available, please contact us for more information.
