Food and wine test kits
Scil Diagnostics has released the Enzytec range of rapid test kits.
Traditional enzyme test kits require the user to accurately dispense small volumes of liquid to prepare the reagents and once prepared, the reagents must be used within a short time frame. Often this means throwing unused reagents away.
The Fluid Line kits are ready to use and require no operator pipetting or preparation. Furthermore, they can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 12 months after opening, opened and closed as required and only used for the required number of tests. This means less wastage and more tests per kit.
The kits are suitable for low volume users, high volume users and users of automated enzyme analysis systems.
The kits currently available include ammonia, cholesterol, ethanol, D-fructose, D-glucose, D-glucose/D-fructose, glycerol, D-hydroxybutyric acid, isocitric acid, D-lactic acid, L-lactic acid, lactose (via glucose), L-malic acid, sucrose and urea. Standard solutions to suit these analyses are available in ready-made forms.
These kits are suitable for use in the wine and beer industry, as well as for general fruit juices, beverages, meat stuffs, dairy foods, animal feedstocks and confectionary industries. They meet a wide array of DIN, NEN, AOAC, ISO and European and Japanese standards.
The kits can be used with existing standard laboratory spectrophotometers. Alternatively, complete automated analysis systems using random access analysers are available which require rapid analysis of samples at speeds of up to 100 tests per hour. Using these analysers, up to 500 tests can be performed from a single Fluid Line test kit and the reagents are simply placed straight from the fridge into the analyser ready for use.
