Difference between the blue and purple test
The Sniffin’ Sticks identification test is available in a purple and blue version. Both tests contain 16 everyday smells but they are supplement to each other. The reason for the development of two version is to avoid possible recognition of the pens and therefor it is possible to use both tests to make repeated tests of patients in a short interval (hours to days, e.g. before and after an operation) possible, without the patient recalling the answers. If you want to use both tests together, use the average of both Identification Tests for evaluation.
