A hybrid electronic tongue is described based on a combination of potentiometry, voltammetry and conductivity. It was used for classification of six different types of fermented milk. Using ion-selective electrodes, pH, carbon dioxide and chloride ion concentrations were measured. The voltammetric electronic tongue consisted of six working electrodes of different metals (gold, iridium, palladium, platinum, rhenium and rhodium) and an Ag/AgCl reference electrode. The measurement principle is based on pulse voltammetry in which current transients are measured due to the onset of voltage pulses at decreasing potentials. The data obtained from the measurements were treated by multivariate data processing based on principal components analysis and an artificial neural net. The hybrid tongue could separate all six samples. Also, the nature of the micro-organisms in the different fermentations was reflected in the principal component analysis.
