New wine analyser validated around the world

Supplier News

FOSS  have announced positive results from an international validation test of the global standard calibrations supplied with OenoFoss, a new wine analyser allowing instant quality control of grapes and wine.  

The wine analyser’s calibrations for must, must under fermentation and wine were tested for repeatability and accuracy against standard reference methods with respect to routine testing requirements. Tests have been completed at laboratories in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Australia and in USA. In each case, the calibrations have been found to be within acceptable levels of repeatability and accuracy.  

The validation results give winemakers an assurance that the measurements they make with their OenoFoss wine analyser are as reliable for routine control purposes as those from a laboratory in their local winemaking region and thus an attractive alternative to laboratory analysis. FOSS wine market manager, Christian Harpsoe said: "Wine producers can rely on the OenoFoss wine analyser for their local region because the calibrations are based on a vast amount of data collected from thousands of samples around the world - you can just plug in the instrument and start analysing."  

Further validation tests are in progress in the USA, Slovenia, Greece, Hungary, South Africa and Portugal. Application notes explaining the procedure involved in making the OenoFoss wine analyser calibrations are available from FOSS.   OenoFoss wine analyser was launched in March 2008 and has received an enthusiastic welcome from wine producers with units already sold in 20 major wine producing countries.
