Measurement of ortho-phosphate in soil extracts usually involves sending dried samples of soil to a laboratory for analysis and waiting several weeks for the results. Phosphate determination methods often involve use of strong acids, heavy metals, and organic dyes. To overcome limitations of this approach, we have developed a phosphate determination method which can be carried out in the field to obtain results on the spot.

The U.S. EPA has issued ATP Case No. N07-0003 in 40 CFR part 136.3 for the use of Nitrate Reductase method for nitrate/nitrite analysis for CWA reporting. Contact your state agency or regional ATP coordinator for approval to stop using cadmium now.
We Currently Offer Nitrate Test Kits for a Wide Range of Users:
Simplified nitrate test kits for users with little to no lab training - for water, soil, plants, and animal feed
Reagent packs for automated liquid handlers, discrete analyzers, and high throughput labs
Reagents and test kits for laboratories with spectrophotometers and other neccesary lab equipment
Enzyme-based Analytical Chemistry is Superior to Outdated Methods:
Selectivity – Enzymes are able to find “targets” in complex mixtures, reducing sample prep time
Sensitivity – Enzymes offer low detection limits in complex mixtures
Specificity – Enzymes react ONLY with the target to be analyzed
Safety – Enzyme-based analysis is environmentally benign and non-toxic
No high heat or pressure, heavy metals, or solvents involved
