K-ACET | Acetic Acid Kit (53 Assays)

Product code: K-ACET

The Acetic Acid (ACS Manual Format) test kit is a simple method for the rapid and reliable measurement and analysis of acetic acid/acetate in foods, beverages and other materials.


Manual format UV-method for the determination of Acetic Acid in foodstuffs, beverages and other materials

                           (acetyl-CoA synthetase)
(1) Acetic acid + ATP + CoA → acetyl-CoA + AMP + pyrophosphate

(citrate synthase)
(2) Acetyl-CoA + oxaloacetate + H2O → citrate + CoA

(L-malate dehydrogenase)
(3) L-Malate + NAD+ ↔ oxaloacetate + NADH + H+

Kit size:                            53 assays

The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved.
This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuantTM Wave
Spectrophotometer (D-MQWAVE).
