K-LMALAF | L-Malic Acid Assay Kit (Analyser Format)

Product code: K-LMALAF

The L-Malic Acid (Analyser Format) test kit is an analyser format for the specific measurement and analysis of L-malic acid (L-malate) in beverages and food products. On calibration, the prepared reagent is linear to > 80 micrograms of L-malic acid per mL of assay solution.

Extended cofactors stability. Dissolved cofactors stable for > 1 year at 4oC.


Analyser format UV-method for the determination of L-Malic Acid in foodstuffs, beverages and other materials

(L-malate dehydrogenase)
