What is ICP?

Inductive Couple Plasma, or ICP, is an instrument commonly used for testing when complying with the EPA regulations in food and environmental issues. ICP will test your aquarium’s water elements down to the parts per million (ppm), or even parts per billion (ppb), surpassing the accuracy of any hobby level test kits.

How does ICP work? 

Salt water is injected into a plasma chamber that is approximately 10,000 degrees Celsius. This extreme temperature breaks everything in the sample apart into the basic elements. Every element is then released at a specific wave length and the machine measures the concentration of the element by how much energy is released at that specific wave length. 

Why is ICP testing for your water so important? 

Research has shown time after time that certain trace elements are necessary for the growth, reproduction and color of many corals. Knowing exactly what is in your tank’s water will help you troubleshoot issues, see what is missing from the water that may be inhibiting coral growth and coloration, or simply help you make educated adjustments to give your corals the best possible environment to thrive. Is this test only for aquarium water? Certainly not. It is beneficial to test your drinking water to insure that chemicals, metals or other harmful elements are not ingested by your family or pets.

Yes, I would recommend this.

Excellent value

Pros: Affordable, detailed, quick

Cons: Process for labeling samples could be made easier

Was very impressed with the process and results. There doesn’t appear to be a mobile app anymore - you need to go to their web site for results. The labeling process for samples could be improved, but I was able to make it work. I got my results back in under a week, and that was during both COVID and the December holiday season. I found the results to be very clear and readable. I also love that you get both salt and RODI results for the same low price. Definitely great value for money.

No, I would not recommend this.

unreliable

Pros: None to my experience

Cons: You get what you pay for.

after I sent in my kit, they lost my saltwater tube. They don't know what happen to the test tube. They only got to test my RO water. I got in contact with them, and it wasn't the best experience. They told me "we are going to ship a couple of test kits on the house for the screw up" its been 2 weeks and I haven't received anything. I called back numerous times and it seems like my calls are being ignored due to the fact that its a cell phone you are calling. If you have the extra 20 bucks for the other guys, I would recommend going with them and avoid these headaches.

Quick ICP testing

After arriving at the testing company, turn-around on results was only 3 days. Very helpful for dialing in tank parameters as well as confirming home testing.
