NEW! A portable version of the gustometer is now available!


The gustometer and the olfactometer are two devices designed for scientific research in the fields of taste and smell. They dispense liquids and odorants as stimuli to a subject, whose reaction is acquired and analysed by EEG or fMRI machines. 


The erogation is controlled by a PC via a graphic user interface. The researcher creates a sequence then uploads it to the machine and starts the test. The Gustometer has 5 channels, the Olfactometer 8 channels, each with one subchannel for clean air and one for the odorant. A TTL trigger exports the signal of the sequence for synchronisation with an EEG or fMRI device. Both the Olfactometer and the Gustometer can be interfaced to E-Prime or other applications for behavioural research.


Gustometer and Olfactometer are entirely built in Italy by APLab and its partner MET Fibre Ottiche. Original design by Dr. Dwight Hector in the US

Like all APLab devices, they can be customised to meet the needs of the user.
