SteriChek® Total Chlorine DPD Test Kit
Measures low levels of total chlorine (i.e. total chloramines plus free chlorine) in feed water used to prepare dialysate.
Provides a convenient, accurate means of measuring low levels of total chlorine (i.e. total chloramines plus free chlorine) in feed water used to prepare dialysate. The test indicates that the level of total chlorine is below the maximum allowable concentration of 0.1 ppm (mg/l) for chloramine. The chloramine level will always be less than or equal to the total chlorine level.
The test kit will provide quantitative results in increments of 0.1 ppm utilizing the recognized standard method of analysis of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). The kit includes reagent, apparatus and a quality control measure for monitoring results. A result of 0.1 ppm or greater indicates that the water tested should not be used to prepare dialysate and that carbon absorption media utilized to remove excess levels of chloramines may need to be replaced.
