Bioelectronic Nose: An Emerging Tool for Odor Standardization

Bioelectronic Nose: An Emerging Tool for Odor Standardization Odors are perceived differently as a function of individual human experience, and communicating about odors between individuals is therefore very difficult. There is a need to classify and standardize odors, but appropriate tools have not yet been developed. A bioelectronic nose mimics human olfaction and detects target molecules with high sensitivity and selectivity. This new tool has great potential in many applications and is expected to accelerate odor classification and standardization. In particular, a multiplexed bioelectronic nose can provide complex odor information using pattern recognition techniques, and could even reproduce odors via an integrated olfactory display system. We expect that a bioelectronic nose will be a useful tool for odor standardization by providing codes for odors that enable us to communicate odor information. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Trends in Biotechnology Elsevier

Abstract

Odors are perceived differently as a function of individual human experience, and communicating about odors between individuals is therefore very difficult. There is a need to classify and standardize odors, but appropriate tools have not yet been developed. A bioelectronic nose mimics human olfaction and detects target molecules with high sensitivity and selectivity. This new tool has great potential in many applications and is expected to accelerate odor classification and standardization. In particular, a multiplexed bioelectronic nose can provide complex odor information using pattern recognition techniques, and could even reproduce odors via an integrated olfactory display system. We expect that a bioelectronic nose will be a useful tool for odor standardization by providing codes for odors that enable us to communicate odor information.
