Arsenic in Water Test Kit 0, 0.010, 0.025, 0.050, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 1.0 ppm
(mg/L) 300 tests per kit
Arsenic Econo-Quick™ for water quality testing is ideal for field and lab
technicians whose time is valuable and who do a large
volume of tests. With accurate results in only 12 minutes, Arsenic Econo-Quick™
uses one simple procedure with 3 reagents that minimizes exposure to chemicals
and maximizes the use of your time. With results comparable to high-end ICP
testing methods, at a fraction of the cost, Arsenic Econo-Quick™ only requires a
50mL sample size to run. Everything you need to achieve results is included in
this water quality test kit. In addition, Arsenic Econo-Quick uses no dangerous
chemicals, like Sulfamic or Hydrochloric Acid, and features a unique chamber
design which reduces your exposure to the generated arsine gas. With the
included Easy-Read color chart, matching is simple and reliable water quality
testing results can be achieved by non-technical personnel.
Our easy to follow test procedure requires only three reagents and as little
as 12 minutes to perform. Reagents are clearly labeled and color coded to make
arsenic testing error free. A colorimetric test strip is used to take the
guesswork out of accurate arsenic measurement. The matching color chart is
thoughtfully printed with extra large color blocks and contrasting colors for
quick and accurate determinations.
Here's how it works:
First, your water sample is mixed in the supplied reaction vessel with reagent
#1 (Tartaric acid with rate enhancers). This will acidify your water sample.
Reagent #2, an oxidizer, is then added to remove hydrogen sulfide interference.
Finally, with the addition of Zinc powder, reagent #3, inorganic arsenic
compounds (As+3 and As+5) are reduced to arsine gas. A test strip is used to
measure the arsine gas concentration in the water sample.
As arsine gas is generated and comes in contact with the test strip, the
Mercuric bromide indicator on the test strip changes in color from white to
shades of yellow or brown. Once the reaction is completed, the test strip is
removed and matched to a calibrated color chart to obtain a quantitative measure
of arsenic in the tested sample.
The included test procedure is designed to detect inorganic arsenic As+3 and
As+5. Test procedures are also available for arsenic in soil.
The patented (6,696,300) and patent pending test kits have five formats
available to suit any testing requirement.
- The standard Arsenic Quick™ test kit
detects 5 ppb (μg/L) of arsenic in 12 minutes
- For added sensitivity, use the
Low Range Arsenic Quick kit to detect arsenic concentrations of 2 ppb (μg/L) in
- The Arsenic Econo-Quick™ kit is our latest addition with 300 tests
per kit at a low price and a detection level of 10 ppb (μg/L) with a quick 12
minute test time.
- For single use, retail sale, and evaluation, a 2-test Arsenic
Quick™ kit is also offered.
