Vinmetrica SC-55 MLF Analyzer Kit
60 day no hassle return policy. Details

The Vinmetrica SC-50 MLF Analyzer gives accurate and reliable malic acid concentration levels in wine for detecting the end of malolactic fermentation (MLF). The new SC-55 Does the same job, but is now sold as a standalone unit that does not require any additional equipment. 

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 0.1g/L accuracy. Because it does not require any fancy, expensive lab equipment and eliminates the need for paper chromatography, the SC-55 MLF gives you professional readings while saving you time and money!

Includes everything needed to measure malic acid levels in your fermenting wines:

  • Vinmetrica SC-55 MLF Analyzer Unit
  • Malic Reagent Set
  • One vial of Biopressure Agent (enough for 5 tests)
  • 5 Empty Reaction Vials with Septa Caps
  • One plastic measuring scoop
  • One “check” vial
  • 10mL serological pipette
  • Plastic beaker
  • 15mL conical tube
  • Two plastic pipettes
  • MLF Analyzer Manual

The Vinmetrica SC-55 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.

Why buy the Vinmetrica MLF Analyzer?

Accurately assesses end of MLF at 0.4 g/L malic acid. Capable of detecting 0.1 g/L malic acid
Affordable: About $3 per test or less.
Easy, safe to Use: No toxic chemicals or noxious odors.
Fast: results in 15 – 30 minutes. Able to run multiple tests at once

Good experience
I have used this for about a year now. Although the component supplies are somewhat expensive, and the written directions somewhat verbose, I have had a good experience with this kit, and prefer it to paper chromatography. The end readings are clear as to how your ML has progressed.

Not A Good Tester
Way too complicated for home use. Not worth buying....

SJones' review
Thanks SJones for your honest review. It helped me make up my mind and solution was NOT to buy the product. I will carry on working with my kit MP930 albeit it's cumbersome but it works.

No quality control apparently
This is my second vinmetrica product. Bought the sc300, it stopped working and had to replace. Just tried the sc50, didn't work. Not surprised. Expensive for the hassle, and unacceptable if you expect it to work. Last point, they say it's simple to use. Just wait until you get the instructions. Totally misleading to say it is simple to use, even if the product did work. No idea how this company stays in business, except that there are no other choices save sending samples into a lab. Sending this back, upset how much time I wasted.
