The new ALPHA II 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 II 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’.
