The study participants wore nasal masks hooked to an olfactometer
-- an instrument used to produce and measure smells -- and were shown a series of images of objects or scenes.
As the study's participants viewed the images, they wore a nasal mask connected to an olfactometer
Three experiments were done: one using an olfactometer
under controlled laboratory conditions; one using an olfactometer
under semi-controlled field conditions; and a third using pitfall traps in uncontrolled field conditions.
Each arm of the Y-shaped glass olfactometer
, with a continuous air flow of 1.0 L per min, was linked by silicone tubes to 2 glass chambers (42 cm H x 16 cm W) with the tested materials.

for mosquitoes to measure the attractiveness of host odours.
We used a Y-tube olfactometer
that provided simultaneous discrimination between two chemical environments, and quantified ambulatory behaviors that might be associated with the sampling of the airborne chemicals.

It was designed and elaborated an olfactometer

Sense of smell was measured using an olfactometer
. The first round of testing (OPID-10, Odor Percept IDentification) called for identifying 10 common scents: menthol, clove, leather, strawberry, lilac, pineapple, smoke, soap, grape, or lemon.
The response of female parasitoids to different odor samples was examined using a static four-chamber olfactometer
, as described by Ruther and Steidle (2000).
