A Great Addition to Your SC Series Testing Device

The all-new SC-50 MLF Analyzer Kit from Vinmetrica has recently been revamped and is the perfect addition to the rest of your winemaking equipment. We have moved from the SC-50 MLF Analyzer to a new stand-alone SC-55 MLF Analyzer. You no longer need an SC-100, SC-100A or SC-300 instrument to use the new SC-55. The new SC-55 instrument offers the same level of accuracy and reliability as the original SC-50 the MLF analyzer and is able to aid the winemaker in the determination of malic acid levels in wine. The accuracy of the SC Series devices carries over into the functionality and reliability of the MLF Analyzer. With its easy to use vial insertion assembly, the MLF Analyzer gives you fool-proof readings down to 0.04 g/L accuracy. Because it does not require any fancy, expensive lab equipment, the SC-50 MLF analyzer eliminates the need for paper chromatography and it saves you time too!

A Quick Overview

The Vinmetrica SC-50 MLF Analyzer measures the pressure given off by the same MLF reaction that you use in your wine. When malic acid is present, carbon dioxide (CO2) is evolved and detected as pressure.

  1. Add 5 drops of Boost Juice to wine sample; mix.

2. Place 3 mL of wine sample in a reaction vial and cap, mix thoroughly.

3.  Allow the reaction vial to incubate for 30 minutes mixing gently occasionally.

4. Use the MLF Analyzer and take CO2 pressure reading using the vial insertion assembly

The device signals whether or not MLF is done! The SC-55 is capable of detecting below 0.04 g/L malic acid!
