The Salifert Nitrate Profi Test Kit Wuse to determine the Nitrate content in freshwater or seawater exactly and easily and allow a very fast and precise measurement.
A too high nitrate concentration can result in unwanted algae-growth and these might irritate corals in their neighborhood. Nitrate as such also retards coral growth. The nitrate concentration in a proper functioning reef aquarium should preferably be lower than 1 mg/L. Fish-only aquariums would usually show much higher nitrate concentrations. Most test kits use a procedure in which a certain part of nitrate is converted chemically into nitrite and is measured as such.
TheSalifert Nitrate Profi Test Kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes.
The Nitrate Profi Test Kit range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate).
The Salifert Nitrate Profi Test Kit is sufficient for 60 tests in freshwater or seawater.
