The Vinmetrica SC-50 MLF Analyzer Kit
Please note: The SC-50 MLF Analyzer Kit contains products that must be stored either frozen or refrigerated upon arrival. Please ship the product to a location where someone will be to receive it. Instructions for storing can be found on the individual reagent bottles as well as in the manual. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
*Due to higher temperatures during the summer months, we reserve the right to temporarily hold shipments of “freezer/refrigeration required” items in order to protect the shipment. Please contact us if you have any questions. The reagents in the SC-50 kit are stable at room temperature for approximately 14 days.*
The Vinmetrica SC-55 MLF Analyzer gives accurate and reliable malic acid concentration levels in wine for detecting the end of malolactic fermentation (MLF). The kit includes everything to perform 10 malic acid concentration tests: all vials, pipettes, conical tubes, beakers, etc. Additional Reagent Refill kits can be purchased at any time.
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 wine making equipment. The new, stand-alone SC-50 instrument offers the same level of accuracy and reliability as all our other SC Series devices and is able to aid the winemaker in the determination of malic acid levels in wine. 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!
The Complete MLF Analyzer Kit
Includes everything needed to measure malic acid levels in your fermenting wines:
Vinmetrica SC-55 Analyzer Unit
Malic Reagent Set
One vial of Biopressure Agent (enough for 10 tests)
6 Empty Reaction Vials with Septa Caps (for running up to 5 tests at one time, plus one “zero” vial)
Plastic beaker (2)
MLF Analyzer Manual
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.
- Add 5 drops of Boost Juice to wine sample; mix.
- Place 3 mL of wine sample in a reaction vial and cap, mix thoroughly.
- Allow the reaction vial to incubate for 30 minutes mixing gently occasionally.
- 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!
