ammonium/ammonia-Test (NH4/NH3)

SKU: CKS04910
$18.49Price

Ammonium and ammonia mainly arise from fish waste. They are converted into each other depending on the pH value.
While ammonium is mostly harmless, ammonia is toxic to fish.

The sera NH4/NH3-Test allows monitoring the total concentration of both (the actual ammonia level can be calculated according to the pH value using the included chart).

 

 

  • Directions for use:

    Shake reagent bottles well before using!
    1. Rinse the measurement vial several times with the water to be
    tested, then fill to the 10 ml mark (freshwater) or the 5 ml mark
    (marine water) (please see page 90, fig. “volume reading in sera
    test vials”). Dry the vial on the outside.
    2. Add 6 drops of reagent 1 and shake until the liquid is evenly
    distributed.
    3. Add 6 drops of reagent 2 and shake the same manner.
    4. Add 6 drops of reagent 3 and shake the same manner.

    5. Compare the colors after 5 minutes. Place the vial on the chart
    and compare the colors from a position above under natural
    daylight. Avoid direct sunlight.
    6. Evaluate the level of free, toxic ammonia (NH3) from the measured
    value and the pH value according to the chart below.
    7. Cleaning: Clean the vial thoroughly with tap water before and
    after each test.
