This project is to develop a cheap, scalable and rapid smell test for the assessment of hyposmia/anosmia including COVID19 related symptom in humans. The prototype test consists of a standardized number of aromatic oils capsules fabricated by coaxial dripping and placed between adhesive strips that users crush and pull apart to release the smell.
