Determination of L-Malic acid in cider
By analyzing L-Malic acid and L-Lactic acid, it is possible to assess the correct progress of the malolactic fermentation.

The calibration curve of CDR CiderLab, obtained using reference methods.
L-Malic acid + NAD+ Oxaloacetate + NADH
L-Malic acid is oxidized in an alkaline environment through an enzymatic reaction and converted into oxaloacetic acid, which in turn produces NADH. The increase of absorbance, measured at 366 nm (end-point), is directly proportional to the concentration of L-Malic acid in the sample.
Reagent test Kits
The reagents are packaged in foil pouches containing 10 tubes useful to perform 10 analyses.
This is the minimum package that allows the use of CDR systems even to those who need to make a few analyses, thus not wasting reagents.
There are also boxes of 100 tests, however, packaged in 10 bags of 10 tubes containing the reagent.
Code *300340: The kit, designed for 10 tests
Code *300332: The kit, designed for 100 tests
The reagents have a shelf-life of 18 months.
