Our specialist odour laboratory is critical to the services we provide at Silsoe Odours. As such, the quality of our results is at the heart of all we do. We conduct all odour measurements and testing at our bespoke laboratory facility at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire. The odour lab was the first in the UK to receive UKAS accreditation, according to BSEN13725, in 2005. We continue to provide industry-leading excellence, holding UKAS accreditation for sampling and testing.
SPECIALIST ODOUR LABORATORY
ODOUR MEASUREMENT SERVICES
We have a comprehensive range of odour measurement services available. Our laboratory services complement our odour consulting and sampling services to give you complete results. Once an odour sample reaches the laboratory, we use olfactometry to analyse it. Six odour panel members assess the odour at gradually decreasing dilutions. The laboratory team can analyse these samples for several different features and characteristics.
LABORATORY ONLY SERVICES
While we offer a fully integrated approach to odour sampling and analysis, we also offer odour laboratory testing as a standalone service. If you are familiar with odour sampling and your methodology complies with the relevant olfactometry standards, then we can analyse the samples you have collected in our laboratory.
ODOUR SENSITIVITY TESTING
If you, or anybody in your organisation, are involved with assessing odour, you will need to consider odour sensitivity testing. We provide you with your individual level of sensitivity to odour, compared with the general population. If you assess odour, you will need this to comply with European Odour Standard BSEN13725:2022 and your odour management plans. With odour sensitivity testing, you can also enhance your personal development (CPD) activity.
Silsoe Odours are invaluable to me as a partner for testing odour samples. I use their laboratory services, on average, several times each month, for many of my clients.
Silsoe Odours are a great source of expertise and allow me to offer clients an integrated odour consultancy experience, without the associated overhead and resourcing costs of operating my own laboratory.
They understand both my needs as an independent environmental consultant, and those of my clients – whether utilities or multi-national operators.
The flexibility and ease of working with Silsoe Odours is hugely valuable. I don’t hesitate to recommend their services.
Director, H&M Environmental Ltd
I’ve always been happy with the service provided by Silsoe Odours and have engaged them both at 2 Sisters Food Group and in my previous position. They are professional, very knowledgeable and provide an experienced crew.
We recently experienced some pressure from the Environment Agency and the local community around an increase in odour complaints.
I asked Silsoe Odours to conduct some odour sampling, to help us prioritise the most odorous sources. I would be happy to recommend their services and indeed have done recently to our Sunderland site.
