Description

The multi-channel Olfactometer provides fast and accurate odor delivery. It is a sophisticated tool enabling the assessment of activity in olfactory sensory neurons and the olfactory bulb. Our Olfactometer systems allow perfect control of multiple stimuli and of stimulus concentration as well as timing. The preparation of high quality odor mixtures is a complex process. With the automated Olfactometer and its software, this process becomes a standard laboratory routine. The Olfactometer can be used and integrated easily for the behavioural assessment of odor-detection and for odor discrimination behaviour. Features Multiple odor sources Fast switching of odor pulses High-pressure small diameter teflon tubing system Mass flow controllers for accurate and pulse free gas flow Concentration gradients and steps Training, two-odor, and multiple-odor discrimination tasks Mode of operation The Olfactometer can have one or two parallel channels leading to one or two separate odor delivery ports. Each odor channel is an air dilution odor delivery system. The air flow through the odorant line is controlled by a mass flow controller (range 0-100 sccm/min). For most of the time, this continuous air (or nitrogen) flow is diverted through an empty vial without any odor substance. During odor delivery, the gas flows through one or several odorant vials. After exiting from the valve behind the odor vial, the odorant flow merges with the dilution air line. This is controlled by another mass flow controller (range 0-1000 sccm/min). The port valve switches rapidly between odor and background gas streams delivered to the odor port.
