The power of a lab in the palm of your hand.
The Sentia™ Analyzer measures free SO₂ and Malic Acid in post-fermentation red or white wine. With a rich touchscreen display and long re-chargeable battery life, the Sentia™ system makes it easy for you to get test results in under a minute, wherever and whenever you need.
And there’s more to come. Our team is working on more key wine analysis tests, so free SO₂ and Malic Acid is just the beginning.
Takes less than
everywhere you go
Sentia™ is light and portable. We’ve made sure it works just as well in your office as it does beside the barrel. With a footprint like your smartphone and battery life you can rely on, it is easy to carry wherever you need it.
Results in less than a minute
Small sample drop delivered to the Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip will deliver a result in under a minute.
No calibration. No reagents*
Avoid messy, time-consuming calibration or reagent preparation*. Everything you need is packaged into the Sentia™ Test Strips and Analyzer so you can focus on the results that matter to you.
*The Sentia™ Analyzer will need to be connected to Wi-Fi briefly, every three months in order to automatically acquire the latest calibration data for our Sentia™ free SO₂ Test Strip batches, although we recommend you connect whenever convenient.
Save on costs
Sentia is designed for use in the winery – at the barrel, tank or bottling line – so you won’t need to send samples off to the lab. Save on testing costs, logistics and time and take back control of your winemaking process.

You might be amazed how easy we’ve made it to go from a sample to a measured concentration. The three steps below are all it takes.
1. Insert a Sentia™ Test Strip
2. Apply the sample
3. Read the result
“The Sentia free SO2 measurement tool has been a boon to a small winery like us who does not have a full lab. We can get immediate results at lower costs than outside labs—it was a no-brainer purchase that is going to improve our wine quality by allowing for more frequent testing and thus better SO2 protection of my wines.”

Carol Shelton Wines - Santa Rosa - California
“Sentia has been an awesome investment. It is quick, accurate and simple to use and made us much more confident during our racking. We would highly recommend this unit to any winery looking for a simple yet accurate method of testing their wines.”
Camaraderie Cellars - Port Angeles, WA
“The Sentia is fast, simple and above all convenient. It has been great to have a handheld tool that our staff can manage as easily as a pH meter. With the addition of malic acid testing, it will be worth every penny.”
The Vineyards at Mt. Naomi Farms - Hyde Park, Utah, USA
“The Sentia free sulphur test and malic acid test has been a great addition to my winemaking tool kit. Ease of use, accuracy and affordability has made the unit indispensable for my day to day winemaking. I have been extremely happy with the performance of the Sentia unit and would recommend it to any winemaker anywhere. Cheers!”
Trione Vineyards and Winery - Geyserville – California
“In the past I used a titrator for SO2 measurements, but it was tedious and time consuming, so when I saw the Sentia unit I was super excited! Now it’s easy, it takes less than a minute to measure a sample, AND I have a record of it in the unit without additional work. The addition of acids and sugars tests will multiply the Sentia’s usefulness. Best wine lab purchase ever!”

Northleaf Winery -Milton, Wisconsin, USA
“The ability to run both free SO₂ and malic acid on the same device in a matter of seconds, and tracking the wine through Elevage makes Sentia an attractive tool in our winery. Coupled with its ease of use and on demand and just in time results it makes timely additions, avoiding issues down the road, easier than its ever been for us. The Sentia device frees up time and delays from waiting on shipped sample results to come in. Considering the origin of the technology in the healthcare industry we can see why the results are so precise and quick. It’s becoming an invaluable winery assistant for me.”

JOLO Winery and Vineyards
Pilot Mountain, North Carolina
“Sentia is easy to use and provides quick, accurate results. But what’s exciting is the potential for future testing. For all the tests this unit will do makes it a smart, affordable choice for any size winery. Takes up very little space in the lab and handheld for portable testing in the cellar.”
Eberle Winery _ Paso Robles, California
“Sentia has fundamentally changed the way I work in the winery. I can check free SO2 almost instantly, on a tiny sample, with no concern about calibration or my consistency with test equipment. With the addition of tests for malic acid, glucose and fructose at the end of the year, I would consider it unusual for a winery not to be using Sentia.”
Lark Hill Biodynamic Winery
“Sentia is a great innovation. It’s really important to have an analysis tool that is compact so the portability feature is great. Compared to A/O, it is such a time saver – we can do a round of free sulfur testing in the winery in just over an hour so it frees up time to focus on other quality measures. You don’t need to be trained to use it so we can give the task to anyone in the winery and we know the result will be the same. When the sugars and malic tests become available Sentia will be irreplaceable.”
Yarra Edge Vineyard
“Sentia has been a fantastic tool for us. It’s fast and reliable, and ultimately means less time in the lab which is great for us as winemakers.”
Proprietor and Winemaker
“The Sentia device has been a game-changer for me. Checking Free SO2 levels is an integral part of the winemaking process on a year-round basis, and this device puts the power of convenience and immediacy in my hands. I can check in on individual barrels or tanks or do composite checks any time that I’d like at a fraction of the cost of having a third party lab run the same analysis. I highly recommend this device to small and medium size wineries that value maintaining quality in their wines.”

Tercero Wines - Los Olivos – California
“For us, this innovative and simple to use device has taken our task of free SO2 monitoring from a two-week process down to two days.”
