  • Other analysis: 
  • Sensory analysis - only products of a good sensory quality are mostly acceptable by consumers, ensure market success and, consequently, profitability of their launching on the market. The sensory analysis results can be applied in process of quality control, product development and launching products on a market as well as in modifications of existing products. It helps retailers to choose their suppliers on the basis of sensory quality of products offered by them. Basic methods of sensory analysis used in our laboratory are:
- Descriptive sensory analysis
- Differential sensory analysis (so called even, triangle and duo-trio methods)
- Methods using scales and categories
- Quantitative descriptive sensory analysis
