Method to detect minimal amounts of calcium dissolved in acidic solutions.


PMID 16110217

Abstract

The study describes the application of the Arsenazo III method for detection of minimal amounts of calcium 12.4-49.4 micromol/l in different acidic solutions (hydrochloric acid, oxalic acid, maleic acid, phosphoric acid, tartaric acid, citric acid, lactic acid and acetic acid) adjusted to pH 2.0, 2.3 and 3.0. A mixture of the respective calcium concentrations with distilled water served as control. The experiments were run with ten repeats in series. Assessment of intra- and interassay coefficient of variation, and lower limit of quantification revealed that depending on the acid used, the Arsenazo III method is a reliable tool to quantify minimal calcium contents in acidic solutions.
