ALS is pleased to announce the introduction of Odour testing as a new NATA accredited test to be offered to clients.
Odour Testing in Drinking Water
Flavour profile analysis (FPA) is a technique for identifying sample tastes and odours. It is also referred to as “Organoleptic Testing”. It can be applied to drinking water sources, finished drinking water, sampling points within the drinking water treatment train, bottled waters and for investigating customer complaints.
Testing is carried out to evaluate the odours important in drinking water. It is not used to judge a sample, to determine preferences between samples or acceptance of a water sample for public consumption.
