The Active Chlorine test strips can be used in facilities where food preparation areas, equipment, and general disinfection are more strictly controlled. Specifically, this product was developed for use in daycare centers and senior homes, where a disinfection level slightly higher than that available using our High Level Chlorine strip is required.
The use of a Chlorine Dioxide Test Strip can provide fast and reliable monitoring of chlorine dioxide levels, including residuals. The High Level Chlorine Dioxide Test Strips detect levels from 0-500ppm in increments of 0, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500. Chlorine dioxide has a higher oxidation capacity than chlorine or ozone, which means lower concentrations of chlorine dioxide can be used to achieve effective disinfection. It can also be used when large amounts of organic matter are present.
The Chlorine Test Paper measures total available chlorine from 0-200ppm, and give results in just seconds. Total available chlorine is the sum of free available chlorine and the combined available chlorine. Our chlorine test paper is most often used to test the strength of solutions used to sanitize surfaces, for example, in the restaurant industry. In these types of applications, bleach is usually used to generate the available chlorine. When using bleach as a cleaner, it must be diluted before use, and it will work best in the pH range of 5-7.
The Extra High Level Chlorine test strip tests levels of free chlorine in a solution, in steps of 0-1000-2500-5000-7500-10,000ppm, giving results in just seconds. This test strip is great for environments requiring high levels of sanitation/disinfection, such as hospitals.
The Glucose test paper detects 0.1 – 2.0% glucose. Our Glucose Test Strips can also be used for similar purposes, however, they are plastic strips rather than paper and measure from 0-3000 mg/dL rather than percentages. The strip can be used to measure glucose levels in osmosis/diffusion experiments, urine analysis (educational only), and food science studies.
The Glucose test strip is specific to testing glucose (detects 0 – 3000 mg/dL or 0-3%)and is intended for educational use only. The strip can be used to measure glucose levels in osmosis/diffusion experiments, urine analysis (educational only), and food science studies. NOTE: The Glucose test strip is not intended for medical diagnosis. Should you decide to test your urine & you get a positive result you should report it to your physician and test your blood sugar levels. In solutions containing oxidizers, a false positive may be observed. The glucose test strips use an enzyme that is specific for glucose. In order for the enzyme to work properly, the glucose needs to undergo mutational. In water samples, this process can take up to 3 hours.
The High Level Chlorine test strip tests levels of free chlorine in a solution, in steps of 0-50-100-250-500-1,000ppm, giving results in just seconds. This test strip is used where higher levels of disinfection are required. The higher range provides a much higher degree of certainty that all organisms are either killed or rendered ineffective. We also have higher level chlorine strips available, including our Active Chlorine, which measures up to 2,000ppm and our Extra High Level Chlorine, which measures up to 10,000ppm.
The Low Level Chlorine test strip measures residual chlorine from 0-10ppm in increments of 0-0.5-1-3-5-10 in just seconds. This test strip detects residual levels of free chlorine. It is accurate within 5-10% of reading the color scale. The strip can also be used to test for chlorine in drinking water if this is a concern, however, our Residual Chlorine test strip, which measures up to 5ppm, may be a better suited option for testing residual in drinking water.
Neutral Litmus test paper tests for Neutrality of a solution, or its acidity or alkalinity. The Neutral Litmus test paper does not come with a color chart as it cannot provide you with a defined pH value. The test strip will turn red if dipped into an acidic solution (pH <7) or blue if dipped into an alkaline solution (pH >7). NOTE: The solution must be water-based.
This test strip is calibrated at 0, 100, 250, and 500ppm, and gives results in just seconds. Peracetic acid is another sanitizing agent primarily used in some segments of the food industry, such as organic produce and poultry. The recommended strength of peracetic acid is typically 150-200ppm, however, this can vary by location. Check with your local health inspector to determine what ppm level you should be reaching. NOTE: If the strips are turning yellow in color, it is possible that the concentration of Peracetic Acid is too high.
The pH 1-14 test strips (3-pad) are wide-range strips measuring in steps of 1.0 pH units, and giving results in just seconds.

This strip has three pads for accuracy and can be used in many different circumstances, including education, industry, cosmetics, water testing and more. Please see notes below regarding how to read the results of a 3-pad test strip.
The Residual Chlorine test strip is for use in ensuring free chlorine levels in drinking water are sufficient to inactivate the bacteria and viruses that cause diarrhea disease, as well as ensuring the water is protected from re-contamination during storage. The strip can also be used to ensure systems have no residual free chlorine after chemical sanitation by testing for very low levels of free chlorine in solution from 0.0 ppm – 5.0 ppm. The residual chlorine test strip is accurate within 5-10% of reading the color scale. The vial can be sold with an illustrative color chart, which is helpful when testing drinking water from chlorine kits in developing countries. A standard color chart is also available for checking residual chlorine after sanitation. Please specify your use when ordering.
Salinity test strips measure the chloride ion (Cl-1) present in solution from 0-1,000 ppm Cl. This strip can be used to educate students on the difference between “fresh” and “salt” water. It can also be useful in explaining the concepts of freezing point depression and boiling point elevation. In applications where the salt content is high the sample will require dilution with deionized water before running the test. In these cases, the test result will need to be corrected by using a dilution factor to arrive at the final result.

The Potato test paper is designed to detect sugar levels in potatoes. The amount of free glucose is proportional to the darkness of the potato, thus the strip can be used to determine color prior to deep frying. Potato test paper can also be used to demonstrate osmosis across a membrane, similar to the way the small intestine works, by showing that glucose, but not starch, crosses the barrier. The color chart indicates concentration levels in mg/dL but this can be converted to mmol/L by multiplying by 0.055. eg. 100mg/dL is equal to 5.5mmol/L. Potato test paper is not intended for medical diagnosis. Should you decide to test your urine and you get any positive result you should report it to your physician and test your blood sugar levels.
