What is eBQC wine?

eBQC wine is an accurate, small, quick, portable and easy-to-use device designed for the measurement of the antioxidant capacity of wine samples in less than a minute.

During the whole process of winemaking, from fermentation to the aging stage, redox reactions (reduction and oxidation) play a key role in the final properties of it. Specially, flavor, aroma and colour are affected by the antioxidant capacity of the wine.

It is based in electrochemistry, the science that revolves around reduction and oxidation of molecules. With only a drop of wine and in less than a minute, a quick and reliable measurement of the wine’s antioxidant capacity, and therefore an aproximation of its quality.

What is eBQC wine based on?

eBQC wine is a small device that works with low cost fungible  strips. The value of the current intensity depends mainly on the amount and type of phenols present in the sample.

The higher the value of the intensity, the more molecules are oxidized to that potential, and therefore the wine has a greater antioxidant capacity. This results in a greater resistance to oxidation.

Why should I use eBQC wine?

eBQC wine is based in electrochemistry, the science that revolves around reduction and oxidation of molecules.

It is a small device that works with low cost fungible BQC-electrodes.

To measure the sample, it is necessary to follow these easy steps:

  • QUALITY

To obtain high quality wines is necessary to take care of all details from the beginning to the end. By using eBQC wine to monitor this process, oxidation and reduction reactions can be controlled more precisely and prevent browning of wine wines, acetic acid bacteria spoilage and the loss of aromas.

  • SIMPLICITY

Portable device to make a quick and easy measure anywhere. The result is obtained in less than a minute what saves a lot of time.

  • VERSATILITY

From wine to red wines, from oxygenation techniques to reducers. eBQC wine measures the antioxidant capacity in all of them, giving support in the decision making process.

  • CONTROL

Since the wine has to establish a balance in each of the stages, and this varies greatly depending on the wine, it is a personalized control that allows to maintain the character of each brand.
In order to do that, it is necessary to establish the desired value in each phase for each product with a reference that presents the desired characteristics. Thereafter, that value is used as a guide for the following lots.
