Less time in the lab
The Sentia™ Analyzer measures free SO₂ in post-fermentation red or white wine. With a rich touchscreen display and long re-chargeable battery life, the Sentia™ system makes it easy for you to get test results in under a minute, wherever and whenever you need.
And there’s more to come. Our team is working on more key wine analysis tests, so free SO₂ is just the beginning.
Sentia is excited to announce more global distribution points for the Sentia™ Analyzer. The Sentia™ Analyzer from Universal Biosensors will now be available to assist more wineries worldwide in the analysis of sulphites in wines. This latest distribution update announces NEW agreements in South Africa, New Zealand and Switzerland. These are exciting additions to the earlier launches of the Sentia free SO2 analyzer in the Australian market in January 2021 with the USA, Canada and Chile followed shortly thereafter.
The last couple of weeks have been full on as we prepared our first delivery of Sentia analyzers and free SO₂ test strips for delivery to Grapeworks here in Melbourne and Enartis USA in California. Our ISO certified facility was humming with precision whilst our production specialists supervised the meticulous strip manufacturing process. We are super proud of the fact that production takes place right here in Melbourne.
A better way to test wine
To create the Sentia™ free SO₂ system, we created the Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip using our heritage in electrochemical technology developed in the medical device field. We then matched this to the hand-held Sentia™ Analyzer boasting a color touchscreen display and wireless connectivity.
Our goal was simple: take the pain out of free SO₂ testing. Make your own testing simpler and faster. No more sending samples to the lab waiting days for the data to come back. Just reliable test results you can collect yourself in under a minute.
Measure free SO₂ in 3 simple steps
You might be amazed how easy we’ve made it to go from a sample of wine to a free SO₂ concentration.
The three steps below are all it takes.
1. Insert a Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip
2. Apply the sample
3. Read the result
everywhere you go
Sentia™ is light and portable. We’ve made sure it works just as well in your office as it does beside the barrel. With a footprint like your smartphone and battery life you can rely on, it is easy to carry wherever you need it.
Save time and money
We’ve made sure Sentia™ can be used out of the box without any special training or skills. That means you can get the results you need on your own terms and in your own time.
Results in less than a minute
Our goal was to take the time and hassle out of free SO₂ testing. A small sample drop delivered to the Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip will deliver a result in under a minute.
No calibration No reagents*
Avoid messy, time-consuming calibration or reagent preparation*. Everything you need is packaged into the Sentia™ Test Strips and Analyzer so you can focus on the results that matter to you.
*The Sentia™ Analyzer will need to be connected to Wi-Fi briefly, every three months in order to automatically acquire the latest calibration data for our Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip batches, although we recommend you connect whenever convenient.
Powered by Universal Biosensors
Universal Biosensors began its journey focusing on the research, development and manufacture of devices for the diagnostic point of care (POC) market using UBI’s core technology of a disposable, multi-layer test strip, which incorporates proprietary electrochemical sensing methods to rapidly and accurately measure different biomarkers in human blood.
Medical devices are where we started so we understand the importance of demonstrated accuracy, reliable performance and high quality. Now we want to bring everything we’ve learned to winemakers, cellar hands and lab technicians, putting the power of analytical chemistry into your hands.
