The Sniffin’ Sticks Screening 12 Test is a basic screening, identification smell test with 12 everyday odors. With this test the question whether the patient possesses a normal or decreased olfactory sense can be roughly answered.
The official name of this test is the ODOFIN Sniffin’ Sticks Screening 12 Test and is developed by Burghart. We have this test available from stock, worldwide shipping.
Screening 12 Test Sniffin’ Sticks
The patient has to name the smell using a multiple choice form which offers four answers for every pen, only one the answers is correct. A template that goes with the multiple choice forms makes evaluation very simple. This test is a commonly used test within ENT and occupational health and safety services. After performing this screening test you can roughly say whether the test person has hyposmia or normosmia. It is based on the identification of every-day odors in the scope of a „multiple-forced-choice“ method. The time required for the execution and evaluation of the test is between 3 and 4 minutes.
Odors Screening 12 Test
The test has 12 sticks with everyday odors. The odors of these sticks are peppermint, fish, coffee, banana, orange, rose, lemon, pineapple, cinnamon, cloves, leather and liquorice.

Shelf life of the Sniffin Sticks
Each stick is labelled with a best before date, you can use the Sniffin’ Sticks for as many persons as you want before this date. Important is that you use the stick correctly, don’t touch the tip of the pen with fingers or nose. That will contaminate the stick and you cannot use the stick anymore because you cannot guarantee the quality of the odor of the stick. The shelf life for the Screening 12 Test is approx. 1-1.5 year.
Due to hygiene reasons we cannot accept returns of the sticks.
This test is also available as a refill set without the holder and material/ manual.
