General description

Method: Colorimetric, with test strips, 0.5 - 2 - 5 - 10 - 25 mg/L (H2O2), MQuant®

Peroxide is an all purpose disinfectant which, due to its excellent antiviral, bactericidal and fungicidal action, is widely used in the food industry. Here, the MQuant® test strips are ideal for controlling the residual peroxide after disinfection. Peroxidase transfers peroxide oxygen to an organic redox indicator. This produces a blue oxidation product. The peroxide concentration is measured semiquantitatively 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 peroxide concentration and a possible dilution factor prior to using a quantitative method such as a Reflectoquant® or Spectroquant® Peroxide test.
