Product code: K-ETOH

The Ethanol test kit is a simple, reliable and accurate method for the measurement and analysis of ethanol in beverages and foodstuffs. Extended cofactors stability. Dissolved cofactors stable for > 1 year at 4oC.


UV-method for the determination of Ethanol in foodstuffs, beverages, and other materials

(alcohol dehydrogenase)
(1) Ethanol + NAD+ → acetaldehyde + NADH + H+

(aldehyde dehydrogenase)
(2) Acetaldehyde + NAD+ + H2O → acetic acid + NADH + H+

Kit size:     * 60 assays (manual) / 600 (microplate)/ 600 (auto-analyser)

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).
