Sentia™ free SO₂ test strips
Sentia free SO₂ Test Strips can be used to check sulfur levels in post-fermentation red and white wine for the ultimate assurance of protection against microbial and oxidative faults.
Sentia™ malic acid test strips
Sentia Malic Acid Test strips work with your Sentia Analyzer to accurately monitor malic acid during malolactic fermentation to prevent microbial growth and ensure wine stability. After a simple 1 in 5 pre-dilution with the Sentia malic acid buffer, in less than a minute you will have a reliable malic acid result. Note: malic acid test strips and malic acid buffer are sold separately
Sentia™ acetic acid test strips
Sentia Acetic Acid Test Strips can be used to monitor the development of acetic acid over time and allow users to act before excess levels impart detrimental sensory characteristics in their wine. Samples undergoing acetic acid analysis require a simple 1 in 4 pre-dilution with deionized or distilled water.
Sentia™ titratable acidity test strips
Sentia titratable acidity test strips work with your Sentia analyzer to track titratable acidity levels in red and white grapes and wine.
We strongly recommend juice sample preparation by de-gassing followed by centrifuge/filtration, prior to testing. De-gas, then filter with either Whatman filter paper or coffee filter paper (if using coffee filter paper, choose the smallest pore size option). Note that 2V Whatman filter paper can be used to remove both gas bubbles and sediment. Alternatively, use Grade 1 Whatman filter paper with pore size at 11 microns, or an equivalent coffee filter paper option (pore size for coffee filter papers can range from 10 to 20 microns). Ensure you prepare a minimum 10ml of juice to produce sufficient sample volume. We also recommend benchmarking your results against a reference method.
In North America, Australia and New Zealand, it is convention to measure titratable acidity at pH 8.2. In Europe, the convention is to measure at pH 7.0.
Sentia™ fructose test strips
Sentia fructose test strips can be used to track the progress of a primary ferment to dryness, and with the ability to measure this fermentable sugar separately, users can act to mitigate sluggish or stuck ferments quickly and efficiently. Samples undergoing fructose analysis require a simple 1 in 5 pre-dilution with the Sentia fructose buffer (sold separately).
Sentia™ glucose test strips
Sentia glucose test strips can be used to track the progress of a primary ferment to dryness quickly and efficiently. Samples undergoing glucose testing do not require a sample dilution.
Sentia™ fructose buffer
Use the Sentia fructose buffer solution in conjunction with your Sentia analyzer and fructose test strips to track fructose levels in red and white wine. At the recommended dilution ratio, 25ml will provide buffer for up to 62 tests. Note: Fructose test strips are sold separately
Sentia™ malic acid buffer
Use the Sentia malic acid buffer solution in conjunction with your Sentia analyzer and malic acid test strips to track malic acid levels in red and white wine. At the recommended dilution ratio, 25ml will provide buffer for up to 62 tests. Note: Malic acid test strips are sold separately
