Simply purchase a test kit, register for a free account at https://www.triton-lab.de/en/, create an aquarium profile, register the included barcode, take the samples, and send them to TRITON Lab.
By using TRITON ICP-OES lab testing not only do you receive valuable information which helps your own aquarium, your results also contribute to the world’s largest study of closed seawater systems. TRITON uses this database to understand and model seawater which in turn comes back to aquarists as advice and revolutionary new products and services such as CORE7.
Each TRITON LAB ICP water analysis is an accurate snapshot of the water quality in your system, analyzing a comprehensive suite of macro and trace elements crucial to healthy function of your reef system, such as:
|Sodium (Na)||Calcium (Ca)||Magnesium (Mg)||Potassium (K)||Strontium (Sr)||Boron (B)||Bromine (Br)||Sulphur (S)||Iodine (I)|
|Lithium (Li)||Beryllium (Be)||Barium (Ba)||Titanium (Ti)||Vanadium (V)||Chromium (Cr)||Manganese (Mn)||Iron (Fe)||Tungsten (W)|
|Cobalt (Co)||Nickel (Ni)||Copper (Cu)||Zinc (Zn)||Aluminium (Al)||Silicon (Si)||Arsenic (As)||Antimony (Sb)||Scandium (Sc)|
|Tin (Sn)||Cadmium (Cd)||Selenium (Se)||Molybdenum (Mo)||Mercury (Hg)||Phosphorus (P)||Phosphate (PO4)||Lead (Pb)||Lanthanum (La)|
Triton Applied Reef Bioscience was founded to take the mystery out of reefkeeping by empowering aquarists to test their sea water, know what is actually in it, and use scientific advice to fix water quality problems before they arise.
Their ground breaking application of HPLC and ICP-OES techniques to reef keeping came from in-house research and development by TRITON LAB. When combined with their range of highly pure supplements and treatments developed by TRITON REAGENTS, we arrive at the heart of what separates TRITON from the competition. They empower hobbyists with the knowledge of what is actually in their seawater, and give them the control to fix it, with accuracy and precision.
But they didn’t stop there. Because Triton are chemists AND reef keepers, they wanted this solution to be available to everyone. So they created the TRITON METHOD: an easy-to-follow recipe so anyone can have the beauty and tranquility of a living coral reef in their own home.
