Quality Control Business
To deal with complaints about complex odors from the service industries, local governments which adopt odor index regulation have increased year by year. Olfactory measurement method (odor index) is a superior way to deal with complaints, but its quality control is very important since it is based on human olfaction. In the trend of international quality control, conduct of periodic and repeated external quality control is indispensable.
JAOE has conducted crosscheck as a unified quality control of olfactory measurement method since 2002. Crosscheck is a way to total and analyze of data measured in inter-laboratory with reference odor for measurement. It enables us to compare each result with overall ones and evaluate precision (unevenness) and trueness (certainty). (Certificate for crosscheck participant is available to be delivered at your request.)
Necessary information, such as suggestions for measurement, is shown to participants at a technical improvement study course.
Known concentration disposable can for internal accuracy control is available to purchase.
This is a good opportunity for staff connected with olfactory measurement at laboratory to improve their technical skill.
