Preparation Note

Description

  • This PT sample is supplied as a 20 mL concentrate.
  • The solvent for this sample is water.
  • The PT sample has been autoclaved for preservation.

Sample Preparation

  • To prepare the solution, partially fill a 1000 mL volumetric flask with ammonia-free, reagent-grade water (near 20 ºC).
  • Open ampule PE1195-20ML (be careful to avoid cuts on glass) and transfer 10.0 mL of concentrate to the volumetric flask.
  • Fill the volumetric flask to volume with reagent-grade water and mix well.
  • The sample is now ready for immediate analysis.
  • If a solution is not to be analyzed within two days after preparation, preserve a sample aliquot with 0.2 mL of concentrated sulfuric acid per 100 mL of sample (pH<2) and store at 4 °C until just before analysis. Analyze the preserved sample as soon as possible within the maximum 28-day holding time.

Storage and Stability

Please refer to sample label for expiration date, specific storage temperature, and specific storage conditions.
