Options:
Inorganic Arsenic compounds in the water sample are converted to Arsine (AsH3) gas
by the reaction of Zinc Dust and Tartaric Acid. Ferrous and Nickel salts have been
added to accelerate this reaction. The Arsine reacts with the Mercuric Bromide on the
test strip to form mixed Mercury halogens (such as AsH2HgBr) that appear with a color
change from white to yellow or brown. Potassium Peroxymonosulfate (second

1. For best results, the water temperature should be between 22°C to 28°C. Use a thermometer to verify
the temperature of the sample.
2. To the Reaction Bottle, slowly add the water sample to the marked line on the bottle (250 mL).
3. Add 1 level pink spoon of First Quick™ Reagent 1 to the Reaction bottle. Cap securely with red cap
and shake vigorously with bottle upright for 15 seconds.
4. Uncap the Reaction Bottle, add 1 level red spoon of Second Reagent 2 . Cap securely with red cap
and shake vigorously with bottle upright for 15 seconds. Allow the sample to sit for 2 minutes to

6. Uncap, now recap securely using white cap with turret up (open).
7. Remove one Arsenic test strip from its bottle (immediately recap the test strip
bottle). Insert the test strip into the turret as illustrated in Figure 1:
a) Position the strip so that the test pad and red line are facing the back of
the white cap (see Figure 1).
b) Insert the strip into the turret until the red line is even with the top of the
place.
c) Allow the reaction to occur in an undisturbed, well-ventilated area.
(NOTE: the test strip must be inserted and oriented correctly, and to the
correct depth, in order for the results to be accurate).
8. Wait 12 minutes. You will notice small hydrogen gas bubbles generated from
the Tartaric Acid and Zinc Dust Reagents.
9. After the 12 minute wait, pull up the turret and carefully remove the test
strip. Do not touch the reaction pad on the test strip. Use the Color Chart
(Low Range Quick™) to match the test strip pad color within the next 30
seconds
30 seconds the colors may begin to change. For best color
matching results, use natural daylight, but not direct sunlight. Use the

important that before you run the next test that the white cap and turret have been shaken as dry as possible. Store used test strips in
plastic bag marked "Used Mercuric Bromide (HgBr2) Test Strips", keep inaccessible to children and pets, and dispose according to local
environmental regulations.

SUGGESTIONS FOR BEST ACCURACY
1.
the kit on a sample with a known inorganic Arsenic concentration value, or with a sample that has been
prepared using an Arsenic standard. By making a “practice run” of the test, you will familiarize yourself
with all of the procedures necessary to ensure accurate testing results. Additionally, you will have the
opportunity to become familiar with the process of color matching, which will help to ensure accurate
test results. ITS suggests the test be run in duplicate for better accuracy.
2. The water sample must not be preserved with Nitric Acid or any other preservation method. Small
be freshly drawn and run within 24 hours. Some water samples held for over 24 hours may read low.
3. The water and ambient temperature are very important to ensure accurate results. As an example, a
water temperature of 15°C can result in the color development on the testing pad to be lighter than the
actual Arsenic concentration in the tested sample (a false low reading occurs). When the water is cold,
warm water sample to 22°C to 28°C before testing (using a microwave is acceptable). If the water
temperature is above 28°C your result may read low (accelerator chemistry reacts too fast).
Consideration must also be made for the air temperature when running the test. Best results are from
22°C to 28°C (water and air). The color chart and Arsenic Scan chart are calibrated at 24°C.
4. After the test has been run, try to rinse out the reaction bottle with clean tap water as soon as
possible. When the reaction chemicals are allowed to sit in the reaction bottle after the reaction time,
the zinc may begin to adhere to the bottom of the bottle. When this occurs, you may need to clean the
reaction bottle with a bottlebrush. Another method for zinc removal is to use a 20% Hydrochloric Acid
(reusable) rinse. Be sure to rinse the reaction bottle with clean tap water before running the next test.
5. When matching your test strip pad with the colors on the Easy-Read™ color chart, it may be helpful
that the correct color match is 15 ppb. If the 15 ppb color matches, then you have determined your
Arsenic level. In some cases, however, an exact color match will not be available. As an example, if
your test strip pad is slightly darker than 20 ppb and slightly lighter than 25 ppb, you can estimate a
value of 23 ppb as your result. Following these easy steps can make color matching more precise.
Careful color matching will assure the best possible result.
6.
levels above 2 mg/L, allow the water sample to sit at room temperature, uncovered and exposed to air
for 8 hours (about 50% of the H2S gas dissipates for every 8 hours).

r, part number 481305)
1. Instrument setup for Arsenic measurement:
a. Remove the instrument from the case and turn the instrument over with the bottom facing up.
Locate the ridged, black latch
between the two (2) screws near the round end of the measurement shoe. Slide it forward.
The measurement shoe is now
unlocked, and will lift up by spring action from the body of the instrument.
b. Locate the "OFF/ON" switch at the square end of the instrument where the data port and DC 9V connector ports are located. Gently
slide the switch to "ON".
c. Turn the instrument upright so that the LCD screen and six soft keys (3 black buttons, menu, exit, help) are facing upward.
d. Depress once any one of the six soft keys on top of the unit. The LCD display will turn on.
e. The instrument is now ready to make density measurements.
Notes:
a. The instrument is calibrated, and ready for use when received.
b. The AC adapter (supplied) may be used while performing color density measurements. Be sure the power switch is "OFF" before
connecting the adapter to prevent any surge in power.
c. When the unit will stand unused for a long period of time slide the power switch to "OFF".
d. Typically, over 100 measurements can be made when using the battery pack only.
2. Strip measurement:
a. Run the test sample according to the arsenic kit instructions.
b. Read the strip with the Quick™ Arsenic Scan instrument within 30 seconds of completing the test.
i. Place the reacted strip with colored test pad facing upward on the white opaque plastic card (2 3/8" x 7"). It is very important that the
white opaque plastic card provided (or a white sustance) is placed under the reacted strip for accurate measuring.
ii. Position the target circle of the base shoe over the color pad so that the pad is centered in the black outlined circle (as illustrated).
iii. Press the body of the instrument down until the optical head is in contact with the target circle. The message “Measuring...”
will appear in the LCD. A "Y" and a number next to the "Y" will appear in the LCD (For example, Y = 0.19 indicates a yellow color
density of 0.19).
iv. Use the number in the LCD (in the example 0.19) and compare with the Data Table provided to determine the concentration of
arsenic in the sample. Be sure that you are using the appropriate Data Table for your test kit. 0.19 equals 20 µg/L or ppb Arsenic.
v. Record the "Y" value and the concentration of Arsenic from the appropriate Data Table for future reference. Note: Use of the Quick™
Arsenic Scan unit will yield more precise results when compared to using the Easy-Read™ color chart for color matching determinations.
3. Calibration of Instrument:
performed weekly. It is also recommended that "Standard Calibration" (steps 4, 5, & 8 in the manual) be performed when "Quick Cal"

LETTER FROM THE KIT INVENTOR
Thank you for purchasing our U.S. Patented (# 6,696,300) Arsenic Quick™ II Kit. Our company has
trademarked the kits Quick™ because of the short 14 minute time for analysis.
The Drinking Water standard of the US EPA and the World Health Organization (WHO) allows a maximum contaminant level of 10 ppb (µg/L) for Arsenic. The old US EPA level of 50 ppb (µg/L) remains as the maximum contaminant
level for many countries in the world.
For several years, Industrial Test Systems, Inc. (ITS) committed a major research & development effort to provide
better and safer arsenic test kits. The goal was achieved. The test was made safer by using tartaric acid, instead of
strong acids, for the reduction of inorganic arsenic (As+3/As+5) to arsine gas. For these efforts a US Patent was
granted for the acceleration of the arsenic detection chemistry by the addition of metal enhancers, iron and nickel
which allows detection of arsenic below 10 ppb (µg/L). The reduction reactions utilized in all kits are as follows:
Zn +2H+
+2
+ H2 (gas) and As4O6 + 12 Zn +24H+
3(gas)
+ 12 Zn+2 + 6H2O (pH 1.6)
The analysis is performed in a closed reaction bottle (plastic) with an appropriate volume of sample (50 to 500 ml).
After the 10 minute reduction reaction, the mercuric bromide strip or testing pad is removed and matched to the color
chart or color analyzed by the Quick™ Arsenic Scan instrument. A light yellow to brown color change indicates that
arsenic is present. The color intensity is proportionately related to the concentration of arsenic in the sample. NOTE:
ITS test kits detect free inorganic arsenic only. ICP-MS methods detect inorganic and organic arsenic. If organic
arsenic is present, ITS kit results can be expected to give lower values when compared to ICP-MS results.

*Range can be expanded by diluting the sample with Arsenic-free water.
** As with any test, actual results will fall within a range around the actual value. The Typical Accuracy listed is from data generated by a technician in our lab using the Quick™ Arsenic Scan instrument measuring interference-free aqueous arsenic standards. Kit expected accuracy is the larger of the two values listed. {Example using Quick™: If the mean is 40 ppb, then the typical accuracy is +/-18 ppb which is larger than +/-12 ppb (40 ppb X 30%)}.
Where precision is important, ITS recommends that you run the water sample in duplicate, since the typical color
matching is within one color block. For best precision consider the purchase of our Quick™ Arsenic Scan instrument.
This unit is ideal for use with all test kits. Please contact our sales department at 803-329-9712 for more information
or to order the Quick™ Arsenic Scan instrument.
1mg mercury per strip. After use, the strips should be discarded according to local environmental regulations.
Valuable safety information about the kit is in the MSDS literature. As a safeguard to minimize the operator’s
arsenic levels.
