Monitor your body and environment for HEAVY METAL contamination. Osumex's Heavy Metals Multi-purpose Test kits test the presence of heavy metal ions to a high degree of accuracy in the body and of a wide range of materials in the environment. This test kit utilises chemical reagents to show the presence of heavy metals. The free metal ions of the heavy metals, if present, stimulate a colour change to the reagents. Accordingly, the more metal ions that are present, the stronger the resultant colour change.

Heavy Metals tested: Cadmium, Cobalt, Copper, Lead, Manganese, Mercury, Nickel, Zinc

Suitable for: urine, water, breast milk; to test the substances which are not in solution, preparation can be made to convert them into solution for testing, this includes dust, dirt, paint, rice, milk, food, dishes, glasses

Sensitivity: presence/absence* (with a colour indication of the type of metal that may be included)

*Presence is shown for levels above 5ppm (mg/l) for cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel and zinc. For manganese a presence is shown when level is above 1ppm (mg/l).
