Question
What is reagent 3 used for on the AMC 5500sc?
Summary
Purpose of reagent 3 on the AMC 5500sc.
Answer

R3 reagent is used in both colorimeters during the calibration cycle, but only used in Cell 1 during a regular measurement cycle. R3 capillary tube and valve are NOT used in Cell 2 during a regular measurement cycle.  Since this reagent is so rarely used in Cell 2, the capillaries for this reagent are the most likely to clog and cause failed calibrations.

See the following articles for more information on capillary tubes
What are the spare part numbers for the capillary tubing used with each 5500sc Analyzer?
