CDR BeerLab® - simple, fast and reliable analysis system of beer.

Analysis of Zinc in Wort

Zinc analysis allows, in a simple and fast way, to quantify the concentration of the analyte in the wort during the production process.

Zinc is an indispensable element for the correct activity of yeasts and therefore measuring its concentration allows to avoid fermentation issues.


Test Principle

Zinc reacts in an alkaline environment with a chromogen to form a colored complex, whose absorbance measured at 578 nm is proportional to the amount of analyte present in the water sample

Calibration Curve

The calibration curve was created compared to reference method ICP-MS. The trend of the curve confirmed an excellent linearity of the system over the whole measuring range.
