Question
Are the Series 5000 Silica/phosphate reagents compatible with the 5500sc Silica/phosphate system?
Summary
Series 5000 reagents in 5500
Answer
The reagents for the 5500 Silica/phosphate analyzer are a different concentration than what was used in the older Series 5000 silica/phosphate analyzers and are not compatible. Due to the different concentrations in the bottle, the volumes used are different and can cause accuracy issues on a different model of analyzer. 
Please note, the standards used to calibrate the 5500sc silica/phosphate analyzers are the same concentration as what was used with the Series 5000 model.  
If a standard bottle for the Series 5000 is unopened and has not expired, the contents may be used to calibrate for the same parameter on a 5500sc system.  
Before these standards can be used, they will have to be transferred to the correct bottle style used with the 5500sc systems. An incorrect bottle type may result in an air or standard leak that could damage the system.
