Sensory laboratory

Identification of Facility
TitleSensory laboratory
AcronymSensory laboratory
Key wordsconsumer studies, expert panel, acceptance test, descriptive analysis, sensory test, productprofiling, market research, preference mapping, conjoint analysis
Latest version2013/04/30
DescriptionThe sensory laboratory is able to perform both hedonic and analytical sensory analyses. The hedonic methods can be used to test consumer acceptance and preference of products. Therefore, a database with contacts of a few thousands of potential testers is available. With the analytical methods it is possible to get objective descriptions of a product, necessary e.g. in the quality control and product development. Several trained expert panels specialized on different types of food are available for this work. Also market research, e.g. conjoint analysis, scaling, and sorting are possible. The professional data interpretation is warranted through several software applications such as FIZZ and SPSS. Also training courses for external people, e.g. quality managers from industry, are offered.
