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

Determination of zinc in water used in brewing process

Zinc analysis allows, in a simple and fast way, to quantify the concentration of the analyte in the water used in the brewing process.

CDR BeerLab® allows you to determine the concentration of zinc in the water intended for brewing in a simple and fast way.


Test Principle

Zinc reacts in an alkaline environment with a chromogen to form a colored complex, whose absorbance measured at 580 nm is proportional to the amount of analyte present in the water sample.

Calibration curve

The calibration curve was constructed using standard chloride solutions. The trend of the curve confirmed an excellent linearity of the system over the whole measuring range.
