Elos Aqua Test Kit - Ammonia/Ammonium Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- AMMONIA

Ammonia is the most lethal form of inorganic nitrogen produced in aquarium water. The major source of ammonia in a well run aquarium is from solid waste from fish and invertebrates, uneaten food, decaying leaves of plants etc... In an established aquarium Ammonia should be zero and the periodical analytical evaluation of ammonia in the aquarium is needed.

ELOS AquaTest NH4, as well as all the other colorimetric test kit of this line, grant very high precision thanks to several procedures like the use of “RealColor” technology, an accurate system to calibrate the color chart compared to the reagents; the validation of each reagent with NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples and the careful stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch.

Thanks to the use of Lab Quality reagents our NH4 test allows the determination of the Ammonia down to a level of only 0.05 mg/l (ppm) alerting on very low Ammonia presence, thus preventing delicate situations that may occur especially in a reef aquarium.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Easy reading: “RealColor” technology.
  • High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated dropper
  • NIST validation: each batch of elos reagents is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    Comments: Not too difficult to use but it's tough to distinguish the colors on the lower end of the scale. Also it jumps from 0.1 to 0.5 on the color chart. It would be nice if there was a 0.25.

    Comments: This test simply has two many steps. Need to test for pH first, have temp., then read the result from test which almost never matches any of the options on the scale, and finally refer to a table. Disappointed. As I have been with most of the Elos tests.
