I’ve just (pre-)ordered a scanner and SDK. The intent is to use this for process monitoring at our winery but looking ahead a bit… Is anyone interested in working to get this certified for alcohol and Volatile Acidity (Acetic Acid)? Is there work in progress?
Is there somewhere where profiles can be shared? The other FTIR for wine relies on a large database to insure accurate results.
As I mentioned in previous posts, our experiments show that SCiO can detect alcohol and carbohydrate levels in drinks with good accuracy. We conducted these tests as part of our feasibility study for future applications we will develop. We are continuing to build these data collections and models to make them available for future use.
Evaluating for other ingredients in the beverage and volatile acidity level may also be possible, although we have not tried it ourselves. It should be noted that any component in the beverage which is below a concentration of 0.1% will not be detectable by SCiO. In addition, as SCiO is currently designed for the scanning of solid samples, a liquid sampling accessory (available in the near future) will be required in order to sample.
As for your second question – can you elaborate? what kind of profiles are you looking for?
