Shelf-Life of Reagents in Arsenic Quick Test Kits

By | March 5, 2018

Earlier in the week we received an email from 'Curtis' who asked, " how long do the chemicals remain good and accurate in the Arsenic Quick (100 tests) testing kit?? We are concerned as we would like to test our well water that contains arsenic and we have a filtration system and need to test this system approximately every month."


According to the manufacturer, full-sized Arsenic Quick Test Kits have a maximum shelf life of between 18 and 24 months from date of manufacture and in our experience we have not seen ITS, Inc. ship a full sized test kit with anything less than one year of shelf life on all components.

All of the full-sized  Arsenic Quick Test Kits that we carry ship directly from the manufacturer (Industrial Test Systems, Inc.) so that our customers receive arsenic test kits w/ freshest reagents and detection strips possible.

Why Choose Arsenic Quick?

Arsenic Quick™ test kits for inorganic arsenic provide accurate results at affordable prices. Designed using cutting-edge chemistry, Arsenic Quick™ gives results in as few as 14 minutes and some versions of the kits detect levels of dissolved inorganic arsenic as low as 0.3 ppb (0.0003ppm).

Health Departments and Environmental Agencies in a number of states recommend Arsenic Quick™ for routine monitoring and/or compliance  by numerous states.  Performance confirmed by EPA/ETV and you can read the reports by using the links below:

Another great benefit of Arsenic Quick™ test kits involves ease-of-use since they require no advanced or technical training to use.  In fact, school aged students have used Arsenic Quick™ test kits for science projects and done quite well. We invite you to see why the Quick™ line of Arsenic test kits from ITS are recognized throughout the world as premium inorganic arsenic field test kits. ALL KITS MEET HAZMAT COMPLIANCE STANDARDS FOR SHIPPING.

All Arsenic Quick™ kits detect below the MCL limits of inorganic arsenic concentrations in drinking water set by the EPA of 10 ppb (parts per billion) and the FDA limit in bottled water of 5 ppb.

Why Test for Arsenic?

Everyone knows arsenic poses a health risk, but many of those same folks do NOT know that arsenic occurs naturally in the environment and may appear without notice or warning in ground water even if it has never shown up there in the past.

Well water that contains arsenic typically will not have a discernible taste, smell or color... so only testing for arsenic in will let you know whether or not the water from a well contains dissolved arsenic, a semi-metal that if consumed can cause both immediate harm and long-term harm depending on the concentration.
