Method: Colorimetric, with test strips, 100 - 150 - 200 - 250 - 300 - 400 - 500 mg/L Peracetic acid, MQuant®
Peracetic acid is a frequently used disinfectant. Due to its measuring range the MQuant® Peracetic acid test strips are especially suitable to check the presence of effective levels in peracetic acid based disinfectants. As peracetic acid solutions are very unstable, frequent controls are necessary. Peracetic acid reacts with an aromatic amine to form a blue dye. The concentration of peracetic acid is measured semi-quantitatively by visual comparison of the reaction zone of the test strip with the fields of a color scale. The test strips are perfect for pre-testing a sample in an economic and quick way to estimate the peracetic acid concentration and a possible dilution factor prior to using a quantitative method such as a Reflectoquant® test.
