Cat.No. 114729  Spectroquant® Phosphate Cell Test
Cat.No. 100616  Spectroquant® Phosphate Cell Test
Cat.No. 114848  Spectroquant® Phosphate Test
Cat.No. 100798  Spectroquant® Phosphate Test
Cat.No. 116754  Water for analysis
Charcoal activated for soil tests
Membrane filter with 0.45 μm pore diameter
 
Sample preparation:
Put 10 ml of the sample into a 1000-ml standard volumetric flask, fill up to volume with water for analysis and mix. After the solid parts have settled, take 20 ml of the supernatant solution and, mixed with a spatula-tipfull of charcoal activated for soil tests, put it into a 200-ml standard volumetric flask and fill up to volume with water for analysis. Before determination filter the charcoal through a folded filter. In case the solution remains cloudy, filter again through a membrane filter.
 
Analysis:
Determine with the above mentioned test kits.
 
Calculation:
Phosphate content in mg/kg PO4-P = analysis value in mg/l PO4-P x 1000
