Wineries Accelerate Results as RX Monaco Gets Green Light

As harvest approaches wineries keen to add capacity to analysis and quality control systems have a brand new option.

With Randox Food Diagnostics’ semi-automated analyser, the RX Monza, widely used throughout the industry, the Northern Ireland headquartered firm recognised medium-to-large producers could benefit from a quicker turn-around and economies of scale offered by a fully-automated system. As a supplier of a full range of analysers within the RX series, Randox Food Diagnostics identified the Monaco as a cost-effective solution with a throughput appropriate to a broad spectrum of wineries needs.

A key benefit is producers can test for the full range of parameters including malic acid, glucose/fructose and ethanol from a single sample, increasing efficiency and cutting the cost per test.

With direct application, no sample preparation requirements mean the system reduces time and labour costs, bringing the overall cost per test down to circa €0.35 as well as producing a result every few seconds. High demand is anticipated from wineries in remote locations currently sending results off-site to central laboratories experiencing several days turnaround. Cutting out these delays mean winemakers and laboratory technicians can make the appropriate adjustments to processes immediately, improving overall quality of the wine.

For larger producers the accuracy of the Monaco, means it is also appropriate to be used as a corroboration application for systems already in place.

Randox Food Diagnostics Key Account Manager Janine McMullan said, “Currently the RX Monza is used in wineries around the world, but the wine industry has producers across a huge variation in scale. Therefore our experience means we know semi-automated solutions do not meet everyone’s needs and with this validation we are delighted to see the fully automated RX Monaco launched onto the wine market.

“As a supplier trusted by brands as recognisable as Sutter Home and Ernest & Julio Gallo we increase market share year-on-year, and are confident the Monaco will be a successful part of our ever-expanding product range.”
