Lactic Acid in Cider Correlation with Reference Method

Test Principle

L-Lactic acid + NAD+ Analisi-AcidoLattico Pyruvate+ NADH
L-Lactic acid is oxidized in an alkaline environment through an enzymatic reaction and converted into pyruvate, which is turn produces NADH. The increase of absorbance, measured at 366 nm (end-point), is directly proportional to the concentration of L-Lactic 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 *300280: The kit, designed for 10 tests

Code *300279: The kit, designed for 100 tests

The reagents have a shelf-life of 12 months.
