Producing consistent, high-quality wine requires good grapes, growing and harvest conditions, and sound production technique. Rapid analytical testing of key components can help with harvest and production decisions, making the most of the grape harvest and ensuring maximum quality. The following parameters are important to the final quality of wine:
- Acetic Acid, Malic Acid, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Gluconic Acid, Pyruvic Acid
- Glucose + Fructose, Sucrose, Glycerol, Glycerin
- Free SO2, Total SO2
- NOPA, Ammonia, Polyphenols, Catechins
- Potassium, Copper, Magnesium
Unity Scientific and AMS have ready to use, economical solutions for the rapid analysis of grape juice and wine.
The SmartChem line combines the latest technology in discrete analysis with an innovative, unique design that guarantees accurate and reproducible results from grape juice and wine samples. The SmartChem 200 can be set up to run multiple tests of organic acids, sugars and minerals on each sample automatically! Simply add in samples and reagents and the SmartChem does the rest!
The SmartChem is ready to be your full-time analytical workhorse in your laboratory!
The Futura™ is the best continuous flow analysis technology available on a single platform. Continous flow analyzers excel at repeated measurements of the same component, and the Futura is ideally suited for Free SO2 and Total SO2 assays during wine production. The Futura will provide easy, reliable measurements for these important parameters.
