How long do I need to impregnate Getxent tubes?

The impregnation duration depends on:

  • The set-up used for impregnation
  • Sensitivity threshold of the dog
  • Odor concentration you want to get when working


In a general case, it follows the thumb rule :

Getxent tube odor concentration = impregnation duration (days) x target odor concentration


For example, 2 days of impregnation with 50 grams of explosives is equivalent to the odor of 100 grams of explosive.
