Question
What could cause method 8192 for low range nitrate to not produce any color?
Summary
No color change with method 8192 for Nitrate
Answer
Following method 8192 for low range nitrate determination, NitraVer® 6 (Product # 2107249) and NitriVer® 3 (Product # 2107169) must both be added to the sample. This is different from higher ranges of cadmium reduction nitrate tests. The NitraVer® 6 reduces nitrate in the sample to nitrite and NitriVer® 3 reacts with the nitrite to form a pink color. If both reagents are not added, there may be no color development.
