Method: Colorimetric, with test strips, 5 - 10 - 20 - 30 - 50 mg/L (peracetic acid), MQuant®
Peracetic acid is a frequently used disinfectant. The MQuant® Peracetic acid test strips are applicable – even in the presence of hydrogen peroxide – to test for the absence of peracetic acid residues after rinsing cycles. 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.
