Description

The Sentia™  Digital Wine Analyzer

The Sentia™ Analyzer gives you the power of a laboratory in the palm of your hand. The device is portable and needs no special skills; it works with the Sentia™ Free SO2 test strips to measure free SO2 concentration and can now also test for Malic Acid levels in post-fermentation red and white wines.  If you need fast, reliable results on the go, the Sentia™ system is worth considering as an alternative to the Vinmetrica SC-100 and SC-300 or Vinmetrica SC-50.

A Comparison of Sentia and Vinmetrica – Free SO2

In developing both the Sentia™ free SO₂ and Malic Acid systems, Universal Biosensors created the Sentia™ Test Strips using their heritage in electrochemical technology developed in the medical device field. They then matched this to the hand-held Sentia™ Analyzer boasting a color touchscreen display and wireless connectivity.

Their goal was simple: take the pain out of free SO₂ and Malic Acid testing. Make your own testing simpler and faster. No more sending samples to the lab waiting days for the data to come back or messing with reagents and titrations. Just reliable test results you can collect yourself in under a minute.

A Quick Overview – Using the Sentia™ Analyzer:

Easy Free SO2 Testing

  1. Press the power button to turn on the analyzer.
  2. On the Home screen, touch the TEST button.
  3. Select Free SO2 from the list.
  4. After selecting Sample Type (and optionally entering a sample ID), select or enter the index number of the vial.
  5. Remove a strip from the vial then securely close the vial. Always store strips in the fridge when not in use.
  6. When prompted, insert the strip gently but firmly into the Analyzer
  7. Only when prompted, apply the sample on to the end of the strip.
  8. When the analysis is complete, the test result will be presented.

Easy Malic Acid (MLF) Testing

  1. Press the power button to turn on the analyzer.
  2. Prepare samples by diluting wine with Buffer (up to 30 min before testing) and mixing thoroughly.
  3. On the Home screen, touch the TEST button.
  4. Select Malic Acid from the list.
  5. Select Sample Type (and optionally entering a sample ID), select or enter the index number of the vial.
  6. Remove a strip from the vial then securely close the vial. Always store strips in the fridge when not in use.
  7. When prompted, insert the strip gently but firmly into the Analyzer
  8. Only when prompted, apply the sample on to the end of the strip.
  9. When the analysis is complete, the test result will be presented.

**Updating your Sentia™ Analyzer: The Sentia™ analyzer will need to be connected to WIFI briefly every three months in order to automatically acquire the latest calibration data for the Sentia™ test strip batches, although we recommend you connect whenever convenient. If your analyzer is not showing the button for MLF testing you will need to perform a firmware update to access this capability. Simply connect to wifi and the instrument will do the rest. The update can take up to 30 minutes to install.**


How It Works

The Sentia™ system measures free SO2 and Malic Acid directly by a modern, miniaturized version of the  technique of voltammetry. There is no need to use a blank; the system is pre-calibrated to work directly on the sample when applied to the strip.
