Question
What does it mean when a test is "over range"?
Summary
What does "over range" mean?
Answer
When a test produces an "over-range" result, it means that the concentration is above the upper limit specified for the test. The color that develops after reagents are added is darker than the kit or instrument can read.When a sample is above the specified range, dilute a fresh portion of sample using deionized or distilled water. Run the test using the diluted sample, and then multiply the result by the dilution factor.
