Lactic Acid in Wine 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.

Composition of the Kit and Reagents

Code *300280: The kit, designed for 10 tests, comprises:
1) R1: package with 10 pre-filled cuvettes with 1 mL of buffer at pH 9.
2) R1a: bottle with NAD+ in TRIS/HCl buffer.
3) R2: bottle with enzymatic solution (L-lactate-dehydrogenase).
