Test para la detección de Ácido Peracético Oxidial® en agua

About the test

Peroxide-based sterilizing or disinfecting solutions usually contain a mixture of Peracetic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide. Peracetic Acid is a powerful oxidizing agent that has a sterilizing effect. Since Peracetic Acid is unstable, the solution always contains Hydrogen Peroxide and Acetic Acid for preventing Peracetic Acid degradation. In order to test the sterilizing solution real effectiveness, it is important that the test be Peracetic Acid-specific, with a minimum Hydrogen Peroxide interference. These test strips are used to measure the concentration of Oxidial® sterilizing solution.
