Question
What are the benefits of using a TNT+ method over the non-TNT+ method of the same parameter?
Summary
Benefits of using the TNT+ reagents.
Answer
  • The TNT+ vails have a barcode that the instrument uses to automatically identify the test parameter, range, and method.
  • The vials have a new design with optically superior glassware and have color coded caps and a flat bottom which improves handling and allow vials to stand on their own.
  • The vials have a narrow neck which minimizes the chance for reagent spills.
  • Many TNT+ chemistries use the Dosi-cap Zip reagent delivery which provides ease of use and eliminates chemical handling.
  • They come in color coded packaging, pictograms, and detailed instructions which simplify testing.
  • The TNT+ boxes contain an RFID tag which can be scanned by some instruments and embed the Certificate of Analysis specific to that lot of reagent.
  • They do not require a blank.
  • They have different range options for many parameters than the non-TNT+ reagents.
  • When TNT+ reagents are read, the instrument takes 10 readings, removes outliers, and averages results.
