The CHEMets test procedure
Kit comes in a plastic case and contains everything needed to perform 30 tests: Refill, Low and High Range Comparators, Stabilizer Solutions, 25 mL sample cup, 1.0 mL syringe, and instructions.
Shelf-life: Although the Nessler reagent is stable, its high alkali content attacks the glass ampoule. The resulting precipitate interferes with color comparison. The refill has a 5-month shelf life when stored in the dark and at room temperature. This shelf life can be extended by 18 months if the refill is refrigerated.
Cost per test: $1.00
