QAC Test Strip 10000ppm

The Extra High Level QAC Test Strip 10000ppm (Quaternary Ammonium Compounds) measures the range of 0-10,000 ppm in increments of 1000, 2500, 5000 and 10000 ppm, and gives results in just seconds. Check for higher levels of QAC when testing stronger solutions that kill pathogenic organisms, as opposed to testing for residual QAC with our Low Level QAC test strip QAC Test Strip 0-100ppm, or our standard QAC Quick Response Test Strip QAC Test Strip 0-400ppm.

Quat test papers and strips utilize an effect commonly referred to as the “protein-error of indicators” to quantify the QAC ppm levels.  While first observed with proteins (thus the name), the technique utilizes pH indicators and buffering systems to create an environment where the test paper or strip reacts (develops color) proportional to the amount of analyte (QAC) present.  The PL quat test papers and strips have color charts calibrated to solutions prepared from OASIS 146, an industry standard quat product.  The performance of the papers and strips with alternate quat products should always be verified.  In addition, any additives should be evaluated to see if they contribute to the “protein-error” effect.
