ALPHA Wine Analyzer

The new ALPHA Wine Analyzer provides improved wine analysis,utilizing the ATR (Attenuated Total Reflection) FT-IR sampling technique.

Traditional infrared spectroscopy based wine analyzers have relied on transmission sampling techniques, where the results were affected by the thickness of the sample cell. FT-IR spectroscopy utilizing ATR is significantly less sensitive to particles and gas bubbles in the sample, providing more reliable and robust results.

Bruker Optics collaborated with leading wineries and wine research centers all over the world to develop the start-up calibrations for the ALPHA Wine Analyzer, which can easily be adapted to individual needs. The user can optimize existing calibrations, can add new parameters to improve calibrations, or create new calibrations based on entirely new products like ‘must’, ‘must under fermentation’ or ‘finished wine’.

  • No sample preparation, no consumables, low-cost, low-maintanance
  • Turn-key calibrations, easy to develop future calibration models
  • Can measure ‘must’, ‘must under fermentation’ or ‘finished wine’ or even be utilized for bi-products, including fruit juices. 
  • Simultaneously measures parameters like Alcohol, Density, Fructose, Glucose, Reduced Sugar, Total Acidity, Acetic Acid, pH Value, Glycerol

The ALPHA Wine Analyzer is a very compact, light-weight system that can easily be transported to different locations. The ALPHA Wine Analyzer offers a variety of operation modes: manual, semi-automated and fully automated with an autosampler. The instrument is easy to operate, offers low cost of ownership, and the cleaning of the sampling module does not require any solvents or consumables. The ALPHA can also be used in the laboratory to measure a variety of different samples like juices, oils, or even sediments and solids.
