Olfactory Detection Port ODP

Parallel olfactory detection of GC fractions.

The ODP sniff port allows the sensing of compounds by the human nose as they elute from the gas chromatograph. The effluent is split as it leaves the column so that it arrives simultaneously at the nose and at the detector.

This way additional information is gained on compounds that are responsible for specific odors.

 

GERSTEL ODP offers:
  • Parallel operation with most standard detectors, including MSD
  • Humidifier for convenient usage
  • Voice recording and voice recognition: Spoken comments are transferred and added automatically to the chromatogram as peak annotations
  • ODP 3 provides a heated mixing chamber where humidified make-up gas and column effluent can be mixed without risk of condensation
