A dilution is required when the expected result falls outside of the test range. For example, if you expect the result to be 11 mg/L and the test is from 0 – 10 mg/L.
To perform a x2, x3, x4, x5 or x10 dilution you will need your sample, de-ionised water and a Palintest dilution tube.
To perform a higher than 10x dilution you will also need a 10mL syringe. This can dilute the sample up to 100 times.

Palintest exists with a simple but crucial purpose; to safeguard water for everyone, every day. It is this purpose that guides us in all we do. After an extensive review and realignment to this purpose, Palintest has decided to withdraw our soil testing range of products from the market. Our Soil Test range has enjoyed many years of success and we are proud of the positive impact it has had on agricultural communities globally. However, in order to focus on our core water analysis technologies, our Soil Test range will be retired.

Lead exposure, through the contamination of drinking water, can have major health implications. It is vital that municipal authorities can employ accurate testing methods to identify sources of lead contamination. Multiple techniques including Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP/MS) and Anodic Stripping Voltammetry (ASV) can be used to detect lead in water – in this article we review these methods in more detail.

The human body needs small quantities of copper to function. But as well as being a nutrient, copper can also be harmful if consumed in large quantities. Palintest’s patented single use copper sensor, which can be used in our Kemio™ product range, can allow water utilities organisations to easily carry out testing for copper in-situ at consumers’ taps.
