DATU, Inc.'s technology, CharmAnalysis™, is a proprietary gas chromatography-olfactometry (GCO) system that measures the odor activity of chemicals. Chromatograms can be produced from extracts of foods and allow both quantitative and qualitative descriptions of the chemical components that cause smells to be generated. The company continues to develop products for researchers in this field.

Cornell Connection

CharmAnalysis™ was developed in the Food Science Laboratory at the Cornell Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. DATU originally licensed their technology from Cornell.
