Monitoring for gluconic acid for botrytis affected grapes

Monitoring for gluconic acid for botrytis affected grapes

Gluconic acid is used globally as a rapid screening tool for assessing fruit quality on incoming fruit, even so far as influencing the price and/or rejection criteria in vineyard contracts. Gluconic acid Gluconic acid – D-Gluconic acid (gluconate) is a metabolite of Botrytis and can be a useful marker for...

Arsenic speciation

Arsenic speciation

Arsenic speciation: More options than you may have expected The determination of total Arsenic does not give an accurate representation of the potential toxicity to humans and animals. This is due to the variation in bioavailability of different species resulting in varied toxicity.    Inorganic Arsenic As(III) and As(V) Inorganic...
