Enzymatic assays

Enzymatic methods are used for the determination of constituents such as sugar, acid or alcohol in food. Such methods are important when analyzing e.g. wine, beer, fruit juices or dairy products.

The test format is based on an enzymatic reaction which results in a color change. Using an appropriate instrument, this color change can be easily measured. A particularly comfortable solution is a fully automatic system such as the compact and portable RIDA®CUBE SCAN. To perform the analysis, only the sample needs to be pipetted into the cartridge; all other steps are performed completely automatically. The result can be read on the display in less than 15 minutes.

Enzymatic tests are performed in a variety of food and feed segments, including alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, spirits), animal feed, baby food, bakery products, confectionery, dairy products, dietary food, fruit juices, honey, meat products, pharmaceuticals, prepared food, oil, seafood, soft drinks, spices, vinegar and water.
