A grand premiere for Repères: our first patent!
This is the fruit of the work conducted in the field of test environments by our Director of Research & Innovation, Franck Saunier.
The aim was to guarantee high quality conditions for gathering evaluation data on products by offering a standardised controlled environment easy to duplicate at all test facilities.
This led to the invention of "The Lab in the Bag" concept, a foldable and easily transportable isolation booth.
The Lab in the Bag value proposition is "my sensory lab where and when I want it in less than 2 hours".
Below is a demonstration of the assembly of 4 booths by one person (the inventor Franck Saunier).
Repères is now commercialising booths for manufacturers and research laboratories, as well as for sensory research institutes operating outside France.
This product, which is a real disruptive innovation in the sensory field, was enthusiastically welcomed at the Pangborn World Congress in Rio this summer.
Since then initial requests have come in from all around the world, with two principle uses envisaged:
. sensory tests when renovating a laboratory or when setting up a laboratory in unequipped sites,
. quality control in plants, with the possibility of creating a very affordable laboratory as close as possible to the production site.
