Determination of TPI - Total Poliphenols Index

CDR WineLab analysis system fast, simple to use and reliable for determining multiple parameters in wine and mustThe polyphenols are a very broad class of compounds whose electronic spectra have an absorption peack at 280nm. The photometric reading at 280nm is then proportional to the amount of the polyphenols present in wine or must 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. *300495: 10 tests 

Code. *300505: 100 tests (10 packages of 10 tests)

The reagents have a shelf-life of 12 months
