CSIC Olfactometer

What is an Olfatometer? At Doñana’s CSIC they know it pretty well. It consists of a maze-shaped instrument, which allows studying which smells attract mosquitoes. This research will let us understand better how diseases as malaria or dengue are spread.
After some design tests, the final model is composed of some methacrylate plates, with different grid gates. All that is joint with screws since any type of glue releases an odor which scare away the animals.
