English term or phrase: Monadic test
The text is a protocol for a product test. The test method that is used is 'monadic testing'. This is the description that is provided in the text: "Monadic testing is a means by which bias associated with the “halo effect” of National Brands that cannot be masked, and the impact of visually discernible patent-protected features, can be minimized."

Online I found this description: Monadic
Monadic testing typically is the best method. Testing a product alone offers many advantages. Interaction between products (which occurs in paired-comparison tests) is eliminated. The monadic test simulates real life (that's the way we usually use products, one at a time). By focusing the respondent's attention upon one product, the monadic test provides the most accurate and actionable diagnostic information. Additionally, the monadic design permits the use of normative data and the development of norms and action standards.

Virtually all products can be tested monadically, whereas many products cannot be accurately tested in paired-comparison designs. For example, a product with a very strong flavor (hot peppers, alcohol, etc.) may deaden or inhibit the taste buds so that the respondent cannot really taste the second product.

So, now I'm looking for a good Dutch translation..
