Since 1975, the Sensory Analysis Laboratory has provided sensory evaluation services to both industry and university researchers, and been involved in various types of research projects of food products.
Located in Babcock Hall on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Sensory Analysis Laboratory takes pride in having at its disposal:

Facilities of the Sensory Analysis Laboratory include:
Charges for services offered are calculated on a cost-recovery basis and are extremely competitive.
