Novel capsule based smell test for the assessment of hyposmia/anosmia

Funding source: EPSRC IAA & STFC IAA
Start: 01-12-2020  /  End: 31-12-2021
Amount: £9,000

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.
