Who should use Sentia?
Sentia is designed for winemakers that want to measure free sulphur dioxide concentration in post fermentation red and white wine.
What does Sentia measure?
Sentia currently measures free sulphur dioxide in post fermentation red and white wine. We are currently working on more tests including glucose, fructose and malic acid to name a few.
Where can I use Sentia?
Sentia is truly portable. It has the same form factor as a typical smartphone so it will even fit in your pocket. You can use Sentia wherever you need a test result.
Is sample preparation required?
No sample preparation is required. Simply apply a drop of post fermentation red or white wine to the Test Strip when prompted by the Sentia Analyzer.
How long does it take to get a measurement?
After you apply your wine sample, Sentia give you a result in under 1 minute.
Does Sentia store past results?
Yes. Sentia stores up to 1000 results in its memory and can export those results over WiFi.
Can I analyse my past results?
You can export your past results from Sentia over WiFi in CSV format (a test file format that is very easy to import into a spreadsheet). Once in a spreadsheet, it is easy to analyse, sort and filter your results.
Do I need to be connected to WiFi to get a result?
Sentia is able to run tests without a WiFi connection. You will need to have a WiFi connection when you first use Sentia so that we can download calibration data from the internet. After that, you will need to connect once every three months or so to download the latest calibration data for new strips made at our production facility. However, we recommend that you stay connected to WiFi as often as possible so that your software can upgraded when a new version is available.
Do I need to provide batteries?
Sentia contains a fully enclosed rechargeable battery and comes with a power adapter.
How long is the battery life?
Sentia can run up to 100 tests between battery charges. Charging the battery is as simple as plugging in the power adapter (provided).
