In a way similar to the human tongue, the ASTREE electronic tongue performs a global taste assessment of a complex mixture of dissolved organic or inorganic compounds.

This instrument detects all compounds responsible for taste in liquid samples and allows comparing various products based on their taste profile. The electronic tongue not only assesses basic tastes (sweet, bitter, sour, salty, umami) but also all other gustatory components (metallic, pungent, astringent, etc)


  • Reproducible and reliable taste evaluation: full & automated sensor analysis procedure, controlled measurement conditions
  • Fast analysis run: 3 minutes per sample
  • Sensitivity: to a wide range of taste compounds, with a detection threshold equivalent or better than human sense of taste
