Fine Wine-Making with the Help of HORIBA Tech
Wineries typically send out samples of the grapes to analytical labs to be tested on costly, hard to maintain equipment.
HORIBA Scientific has developed Aqualog®, an analytical instrument based on the simultaneous measurement of Absorbance, Transmission, Fluorescence Excitation and Emission Matrix (A-TEEM™). Aqualog reports NIST-traceable A-TEEM fingerprints which can be evaluated using multivariate statistics such as PARAFAC (Parallel Factor Analysis), PCA (Principal Components Analysis), CLS (Classical least Squares) and PLS (Partial least Squares Analysis). Importantly A-TEEM fingerprints yield qualitative and quantitative composition of key flavor and color determinants in wine and spirits that are not discernible with simple Absorbance or Transmission data analysis.
