General description

Method: photometric 0.0025 - 5.00 mg/l Fe Spectroquant®
This Spectroquant Iron test allows the accurate quantification of iron ions in various waters. All iron ions are reduced to iron(II) ions. In a thioglycolate-buffered medium these react with a triazine derivative to form a red-violet complex that is determined photometrically.

MQuant test strips can be used for pre-testing a sample in an economic and quick way to estimate the iron concentration and a possible dilution factor prior to using a quantitative method such as the Spectroquant test.

All our Cell and Reagent Test Kits are equipped with the unique Live ID which allows seamless method recognition and contains essential information such as lot number, expiry date, and automatic calibration updates.

The Spectroquant Reagent Test Kits contain highly stable, ready-to-use reagent mixtures to perform the analysis according to the procedure described in the accompanying instruction leaflet.
