WETT Waterless Empirical Taste Test
The Waterless Empirical Taste Test™ (WETT®) from manufacturer Sensonics is an easy and inexpensive method for quantitatively evaluating taste function for up to 25 individuals. The taste strips are supplied in a handy case.
The Waterless Empirical Taste Test consists of 5 different flavors: sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami. Each taste will be delivered in 4 concentrations.
For each taste there are 50 strips, because each concentration will be presented to the test person twice you can test 25 persons and not 50. In total you will receive 50 strips in 4 concentrations of each taste. That means 4 x 50 strips of sweet, sour, bitter, salt and umami. In addition, also blank strips are included for control purposes.
The kit will be delivered including an English manual.
