The method employs disposable amperometric sensors in a simple, sequential method not requiring reagent or sample preparation.
It has, says the company, been comprehensively reviewed by the EPA and is “a major breakthrough for users of chlorine dioxide as a disinfectant”. Palintest claims the ChlordioX™ Plus is now the only truly portable method for determining chlorite in water samples. Its “simple and sequential test protocol” is designed to speed up the analytical process for monitoring in applications using chlorine dioxide. Its sister product the ChlordioXense also uses the same method.
The method is being targeted at applications including drinking water, cooling towers and food manufacturing. The kit itself contains the ChlordioX™ Plus instrument, 2 Boxes of ChlordioX (CDX) sensors (with calibration chip), a box of ChloroSense™ (CS) sensors (with calibration chip), and a selection of reagents and other accessories.
Palintest is exhibiting at the forthcoming WWEM show (see page 14 in the News section).
