Visual Test Kits

CHEMetrics visual test kits are self-contained kits that do not require any additional equipment, such as a photometer or other instrumentation, to use. This makes them cost effective as well as highly portable, fast and convenient.

CHEMetrics visual test kits comprise both Visual Colourimetric test kits (CHEMets and VACUettes) and Titrimetric test kits (Titrets) and cover virtually every water quality analyte in the CHEMetrics range. For more information on how these kits work, please see the Test Methods page. The core technology at the heart of these non-instrumental test kits is the CHEMetrics Self-Filling Reagent Ampoule. Premixed. Premeasured. Precise.

Each kit contains 30 ampoules for 30 tests. Additional refill packs of 30 ampoules are available for each CHEMets and VACUettes kit. Titrets do not employ colour comparators and are self-contained, consumable items.

Please note that the units 'ppm' are equivalent to 'mg/l'.
