Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CLASSIFYING A TOBACCO SAMPLE INTO ONE OF A PREDEFINED SET OF TASTE CATEGORIES
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE CLASSIFICATION D’UN ÉCHANTILLON DE TABAC DANS L’UNE D’UN ENSEMBLE PRÉDÉFINI DE CATÉGORIES DE GOÛT
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus are provided for classifying a tobacco sample of a particular tobacco type into one of a predefined set of taste categories for that tobacco type. The method comprises acquiring mass spectrometry data from the tobacco sample; identifying from the acquired mass spectrometry data a plurality of chemical components and their respective content levels within the tobacco sample; and assigning the tobacco sample to one of the predefined set of taste categories for that tobacco type based on the plurality of chemical components and their respective content levels identified within the tobacco sample, using a statistical multivariate regression model that represents a relationship between the chemical components and the taste categories.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour classer un échantillon de tabac d’un type de tabac particulier dans un ensemble prédéfini de catégories de goût pour ce type de tabac. Le procédé comprend l’acquisition de données de spectrométrie de masse à partir de l’échantillon de tabac ; l’identification, à partir des données de spectrométrie de masse acquises, d’une pluralité de composants chimiques et de leurs niveaux de teneur respectifs dans l’échantillon de tabac ; et l’assignation de l’échantillon de tabac à l’une de l’ensemble prédéfini de catégories de goût pour ce type de tabac sur la base de la pluralité de composants chimiques et de leurs niveaux de teneur respectifs identifiés dans l’échantillon de tabac, au moyen d’un modèle statistique de régression multivariée qui représente une relation entre les composants chimiques et les catégories de goût.
