The Smell Identification Test™ [UPSIT] is our comprehensive 40-item test. It is the most reliable (test-retest r=0.94) and accurate olfactory test available. The worldwide standard for olfactory testing.

Provides an absolute indication of smell loss (anosmia; mild, moderate, or severe microsomia) as well as an index to detect malingering. Norms from nearly 4,000 men and women spanning the entire age range provide a basis for examinee percentile rank. Available in 28 languages.

The Smell Identification Test™ Administration Manual, which includes one scoring key, is essential for test interpretation and must be ordered separately. Currently available only in English and German. Please refer to Product Details below.

Although normative data are also available for some countries outside of North America, we encourage our multinational colleagues and collaborators to work with us in the development of norms relative to their specific countries or populations. For this reason, Sensonics International is willing to facilitate such development through our outreach program. Please contact Ms. Kyra Milnamow for more details.
