This month, Bruker announced the release of the updated and enhanced version 3.1 Wine-Profiling module of the successful NMR FoodScreener platform. Developed and validated together with Bruker’s wine analysis consortium partners, Eurofins Scientific Group (Brussels, Belgium) and WineSpin-Analytics GmbH & Co. KG (Aspisheim, Germany), as well as further partners from the wine industry and the field of wine research, the new 3.1 release fulfils market needs for an improved coverage of white wines in the three most recent vintages and for better coverage of certain regions, appellations and grape varieties.
The new 3.1 Wine-Profiling module now adds the following capabilities:
- Verification of geographical origin by country for white wines (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain) and for red wines (Chile)
- Verification of special regions: Bourgogne (red, white), Languedoc (red), Rhone (red) and Loire (red)
- Verification of certain appellations: Chablis (France) and Valpolicella (Italy), and one new grape variety: Verdejo (Spain)
Thomas Bocher, market manager for Food, Feed & Beverage at the Bruker BioSpin Group, says: “We are really excited to bring this new and enhanced version to market, in collaboration with international experts and wine producers. Every year consumers are confronted with food scandals, damaging public trust in the integrity of food supply chains. Food quality and safety are important issues for manufacturers, retailers, government control agencies and consumer protection organizations. Our Wine-Profiling module 3.1 has improvements across the board from all existing models and addresses the need for improved coverage of white wines in the three most recent vintage years as well as better coverage of certain regions, appellations and grape varieties. Our solution provides a unique advantage for our customers in the wine industry.”
