Scent machine

Between May 29 and June 9 we are closed. Starting June 10 we wll be in Langezijds.

The scent machine at the BMS Lab can be used by researchers and students alike to add another dimension to their research. By vaporisation of etheric oils, the scent machine can help you change the mood of the room in which the experiment is done.

Scent Machine For Research & Education

The scent machine can be used in a variety of research and in combination with other pieces of equipment. For example, it has been used to study how scents affect consumer behavior.

In the video, you can see the experiences of people in the BMS Lab who have already worked with the scent machine.
