Industrial Test Systems, Inc. (ITS) has released the eXact® Strip Micro Peracetic Acid test strip which can detect Peracetic Acid (PAA) at concentration up to 590 parts per million (ppm) when used in the 525nm eXact® Photometers.

With the addition of the new extended range Peracetic Acid test method, users will be able to quantify concentrations of PAA from 0 to 590 ppm. ITS has employed an entirely new reagent system in order to achieve this extended range. Previous test methods from ITS were able to detect concentrations of PAA from 0-11 ppm. Peracetic acid is used as an anti-microbial agent which the FDA recommends is under 220 ppm for washing meat. The addition of this new range gives food processing facilities the ability to test for FDA compliance of these solutions.

Photometric testing is more precise and reliable than visual test methods while remaining cost effective. The patent pending eXact® Strip Micro reagent delivery system for use in eXact® Photometers allows for precise, accurate, and reliable measurement of trace chemicals in water.
