Sniffin’ Sticks – Threshold Test with 2-Phenylethanol
The Sniffin’ Sticks smell threshold test is determined in a so called “staircase procedure”. After a start concentration of the smell is found out, the dilution step is identified at which the smell can just be distinguished from nonsmelling pens (blanks).
This test is available in two versions: this one with 2-phenylethanol (also known as the rose test) and the version with n-butanol.

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.
Eacht test contains 48 odour pens = 32 blanks and 16 dilutions.
