A factor which is used to calculate proceeding dilutions during olfactometry analysis. A ratio of the current dilution to the step factor calculates the next dilution in the dilution series.
Max dilution = 400
Step Factor = 1.5
Steps or Dilution Series = 6
|Step Factor 1.5||400/1.5 = 267||267/1.5 = 178||178/1.5 =118||118/1.5 = 79||79/1.5 = 53|
|Step/Dilution Series =6||1||2||3||4||5||6|
