Micro Essential Laboratory does a QC check before all product ships and recommends a QC check only if you keep open product longer than 6 months. If your Nitrazine paper is used before the 6 month mark, no QC check is required.
If you choose to do periodic QC testing we recommend every 30 days
Quality Control Procedure
- Tear off a strip of pH paper from the roll
- Dispense a drop of the pH 5.0 buffer solution onto the strips of paper
- Immediately match the color of the pH paper with the closest color on the color chart supplied with the pH paper dispenser
- Repeat steps 1-3 with the 7.0 buffer solution, or with the buffer required by your testing protocol.
