Oculyze offers a smart, technology-driven solution to the age-old problem of manual yeast counting and is now automating yeast analysis for hundreds of customers in over 40 countries.
Oculyze Fermentation Wine (FW) combines a 400x optical magnification with cloud-based image analysis software to enable you to accurately, easily and instantly analyze yeast concentrations onsite before and during the fermentation process. No special expertise or training is required.
Yeast cell counting is a very small investment to ensure your vintage achieves the potential of your grapes. You can’t control the sun or the rain, but you can control your fermentation.

Viability & concentration in under a minute
We analyze the same volume as in a counting chamber (haemocytometer) but is 10 times faster and has no human error. Additionally, yeast viability is determined by differentiating between live and dead cells with methylene violet staining.
10x faster & more accurate than traditional methods
An integrated separation of clumped cells allows an accurate analysis; budding cells are automatically identified and provided as a separate value.
Automatic storage and backup
Our data management system allows you to access all of your yeast concentration and viability results. Review your analysis history from anywhere, anytime.
Mobile & tablet compatible
View and analyze your measurements from any connected device. The web app allows you to generate customized reports, view historical data, track your yeast over time and increase statistical accuracy by creating averages of different measurements.
