To give you some inspiration, IFTSA asked me to come up with a few fun examples- thank you to my labmates (and sweet dog!) for being my models!
Where will you show us your OFG?
What’s that thing on your face?
It’s a sniff port- it’s how I do odor analysis of my beet samples 🙂
ah cool, I’ve never seen one of those before. How does that work?
Check out this diagram Thomas. I used it for an undergraduate presentation that I did recently in which I was discussing how sensory and instrumental data go together. Essentially, it’s a regular GC, but instead of just going to a quantitative detector, such as a mass spectrometer, the molecules are split between an MS and a “sniffer port”, so you can smell the compounds as they are eluting off the column and then relate them back to flavor in a much more tangible way. I have only worked with one once, so I bet Bethany can give a much better description, but this diagram will help:
Love this! So fun! Can’t beat free registration to the AMFE…such a great experience.
GC-O is a really neat tool. I have used it once in a Sensory class. I am currently using 2D-GC for my experiments, but GC-O really allows you to connect human perception to instrumental/analytical data.
How many pictures i can submit for this OFG contest?
