Aro­ma sens­ing tech­no­lo­gy has be­co­me in­cre­asing­ly im­portant in the food and fra­grance in­dus­tries, pro­vi­ding a re­lia­ble me­thod for de­tec­ting and ana­ly­zing aro­mas. With the abili­ty to de­tect even trace amounts of spe­ci­fic com­pounds, aro­ma sens­ing tech­no­lo­gy can trans­form the way com­pa­nies de­ve­lop, ma­nu­fac­tu­re, and eva­lua­te their pro­ducts. From pro­duct de­ve­lo­p­ment to qua­li­ty con­trol, aro­ma sens­ing tech­no­lo­gy plays a vi­tal role in en­su­ring the con­sis­ten­cy and qua­li­ty of aro­mas in the mar­ket.

  • Op­ti­mi­ze pro­ces­sing steps to pre­ser­ve the de­si­red aro­ma.
  • Crea­te new aro­mas spe­ci­fic to in­di­vi­du­al cus­to­mer pre­fe­ren­ces.


  • De­tect and avo­id con­ta­mi­nants lea­ding to un­de­si­red aro­ma no­tes.
  • Mo­ni­tor the ma­nu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess and aro­ma qua­li­ty in real-time.
  • Iden­ti­fy pro­duc­tion pa­ra­me­ters re­spon­si­ble for the for­ma­ti­on of off-fla­vors.


  • Sup­port and va­li­da­te de­cis­i­ons made by a hu­man sen­so­ry pa­nel.
  • En­su­re qua­li­ty stan­dards by me­ans of a data-dri­ven sen­sor sys­tem.

Fla­vorings are very po­pu­lar as they give some ex­tra tas­te to foods and be­ver­a­ges like pa­stries, ice cream, sweets, cof­fee, or tea. In this ex­am­p­le, the Ha­Voc sen­so­ry sys­tem was used to in­ves­ti­ga­te dif­fe­rent cher­ry fla­vors from dif­fe­rent ma­nu­fac­tu­r­ers.

The ana­ly­sis of dif­fe­rent cher­ry-type fla­vorings show­ed si­gni­fi­cant­ly dif­fe­rent vo­la­ti­le fin­ger­prints which ea­si­ly al­low to a dif­fe­ren­tia­ti­on. Ad­di­tio­nal­ly dra­wing on sta­tis­ti­cal me­ans like prin­ci­pal com­po­nent ana­ly­sis (PCA), Ha­Voc al­lows for an easy and au­to­ma­ted clus­te­ring of dif­fe­rent fla­vorings.

Re­la­ted App Note

Cha­rac­te­riza­ti­on of cher­ry-type fla­vorings
In this ap­pli­ca­ti­on note, we will in­tro­du­ce the ca­pa­bi­li­ties of our new sen­sor sys­tem (Ha­Voc) for real-time ana­ly­sis of vo­la­ti­le or­ga­nic com­pounds (VOCs). This sys­tem is ba­sed on mass spec­tro­me­try and de­li­vers real-time re­sults of la­bo­ra­to­ry-gra­de qua­li­ty.

Loo­king for a La­bo­ra­to­ry So­lu­ti­on?

The Ha­Voc Sen­so­ry Sys­tem is de­si­gned to re­vo­lu­tio­ni­ze in­dus­tri­al ana­ly­ses. If you are ra­ther loo­king for a la­bo­ra­to­ry so­lu­ti­on than an in­dus­tri­al one, dis­co­ver our lab ap­pli­ca­ti­ons ba­sed on the SICRIT® io­niza­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy!
