From 1986
innovating for you

HISTORY

1986
Jorge Subirana arrives in Spain from France. He brings with him analytic technologies adapted to Oenology, developed in France since the mid 70's early 80's: the continuous-flow technology, near infrared for alcohol volumetrics, and electrochemical potentiometry for SO2. At the end of this year Tecnología Difusión Ibérica, TDI is founded.
1986
1992
It begins the research in sequential chemical analysers (enzymatic, colorimetric), as well as the adaptation of the lyophilized enzymatic reagents and the development of colorimetric reagents.
1992
1994
The first chemical sequential analyser (enzymatic and colorimetric) is put on the Spanish market. It provides a greater speed of analysis, ease of use for the oenologist and great economic advantages for wineries and laboratories. The first model was the VPI. For the first time a company introduces in the enological market the complete concept of instrument + reagents + service and advice.
1994
1995
The Lisa 200 model is introduced, becoming to be, in a few years, the reference analyser both in official laboratories as in wineries. As a result of a good work of research, we quickly move from the 6 analytical parameters of the beginning to more than 20 parameters that TDI updates free of charge to its customers.

Development of TDI's first lyophilized enzymatic reagents of its own.
1995
1997
Introduction of analyser Enochem model, suitable for customers with smaller analytical volume. Development of a whole own range of lyophilized enzymatic and colorimetric reagents in collaboration with an Italian company.
1997
1999
Commercialisation of semiautomatic analyser Jolly model, giving small wineries the same analytical possibilities that large ones.
1999
2000
They are installed in France the first mid-infrared instruments (FTIR), Bacchus I for Oenology.
2000
2002
Bacchus I is introduced in Spain.
2002
2004
Tests of the new model Bacchus II.
2004
2005
Introduction in the market of the new model Bacchus II.
2005
2006
After years of research and tests, TDI gets to industrialize a fast filtration system for musts at harvest reception. TDI patents this device under the name Mostonet®.
2006
2007
TDI makes progress in the study and development of new reagents and introduces the world's first liquid reagents.
2007
2008
It is launched to the market the new range of chemistry analysers, enzymatic, colorimetric and turbidimetric for wines and musts with the name Miura. The Miura provide improvements to the market, such as rotary distribution, the automatic washing station for the reaction and reading cups, etc.
2008
2010
Continuing the investigation of liquid reagents of 2007, TDI gets to develope the liquid ready-to-use reagents, providing great convenience and savings to customers.
2010
2011
TDI becomes the owner of all the assets of the company Microdom, the company with whom TDI had developed in conjunction the entire infrared technique.
2011
2012
Jorge Subirana founds TDIF, a French subsidiary of TDI, distribution point to all the world. The company starts its period of internationalization. In June, the new Bacchus 3 sees the light of day.
2012
2013
The year when TDI strengthens export through close partnerships with distributors in France, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, among others.

TDI incorporates the new Miura One and Miura 200 analysers to its product range.

Introduction of the Gluconic Xpress system, for the determination of gluconic acid in less than 3 minutes. The simplest and safest, as it does not require any type of preparation and can be used depending on the needs of each winery.
2013
2014
Presentation of a new version of the Alcoquick 4000 infrared analyzer, which, in addition to analyzing alcohol and density, allows the measurement of dry matter.

Launch of the Criosmart analyser for the measurement of tartaric precipitation with maximum precision.

Moving all reagent production to the company's headquarters in Gavà (Barcelona).
2014
2017
Change of the company's headquarters to the current warehouse in C/ Progrés, 46-48 in Gavà (Barcelona), gaining in surface area. Expansion of the production area and creation of the R+D+i department.

We introduce the ATP3000 and Flash titrators for the analysis of pH, Total Acidity and SO2, with greater precision and greater speed.
2017
2018
Quality Management Systems: implementation of the international standard ISO 9001: 2015.
2018
2019
Launch of the Smart automatic chemistry analyser and the Densimeters (DA-130N manual/portable version and ALM-155 benchtop version) that allow extremely precise and reproducible determinations.
2019
2020
Incorporation of Ascorbic and Pyruvic acid reagents.
2020
2021
The Miura Range is completed with the incorporation of the chemical analysers, the smallest and most revolutionary, the Miura 200 2 arms with up to 220 test/hour and the DE-Cooler.

Environmental Management Systems: implementation of the new international standard ISO 14001: 2015.
