Quality Control

Sensory analysis of odor, taste, and vision - Quality control application.

How can instrumental sensory evaluation improve quality control process?

At the production level, manufactured products and raw materials must comply with quality and safety standards required by both consumers and regulatory agencies. In assessing product conformity, chemical composition and sensory features must be strictly and consistently analyzed.


Thanks to our instrumental sensory analysis solutions, the quality control laboratories can get fast and reliable tools to meet their needs in:


  • Control of odor conformity, taste conformity and visual conformity during scale-up
  • • Suppliers monitoring based on odor quality / taste quality / visual quality specifications
  • • Odor conformity / taste conformity / visual conformity of raw material & finished product
  • • Batch-to-batch consistency or site-to-site consistency testing based on odor quality / taste quality standards
  • • Aroma shelf life / taste shelf life testing: evolution of odor quality / taste quality over time
  • • Quantification of sensory attributes
  • • Optimization of sensory panel methods (improved reference scales, simplified routine tests) for odor quality control / taste quality control

Advantages of instrumental sensory analysis for quality control

  • • Fast delivery of results to evaluate odor conformity / taste conformity / visual of products
  • • Easy-to-understand decision tools such as Quality Control Cards for odor conformity / taste conformity / visual conformity tests
  • • Better sensory consistency and sensory quality of products
  • • Better sensory panel methods for sensory quality control
  • • Decreased sensory costs for routine odor quality control / taste quality control / visual quality control compared with sensory panel sessions and manual sorting
  • • Reduced inventory delaysthanks to faster sensory quality control methods
  • • Reduced human sensory panel workload on routine odor quality control / taste quality control / visual quality control
