L-Malic Acid Assay Kit (MegaQuant™ Format)
The L-Malic Acid test kit is suitable for the measurement and analysis of L-malic acid in grapes, grape juice and wine using the MegaQuant™ colorimeter (measurement at 505 nm). Suitable for white and red wines at all stages of the winemaking process.
Simple colourimetric method for the determination of L-Malic
Acid in foodstuffs, beverages and other materials
(1) L-Malic acid + NAD+ ↔ oxaloacetate + NADH + H+
(2) Oxaloacetate + L-glutamate → L-aspartate + 2-oxoglutarate
(3) INT + NADH + H+ → NAD+ + INT-formazan
Kit size: 60 assays
Method: Spectrophotometric at 505 nm
Reaction time: ~ 6 min
Detection limit: 15.4 mg/L
