- Nitrate REEFER Test Kit - NYOS
NYOS REEFER test kits - taking measurements at the laboratory level at an attractive price
Water properties as close to nature are the key for every aquarium's success. However, monitoring relevant parameters in seawater is difficult due to numerous interfering ions. Therefore, test kits considering the specific characteristics of seawater are needed to analyze the water precisely. Nyos has developed a high sensitivity seawater nitrate test kit for the professional reefer.
- Highly sensitive reagents
- Professionally calibrated color chart
- Differentiated color gradations
- Precise sliding comparator
- Sample tubes made of glass
- calibrated dropper made by a German manufacturer ensures uniform drops during all repeat tests
- reagents are made in Germany in accordance with EN ISO 9001
- reagents are analyzed according to AAS and NIST standards
- strict batch and quality control
- easy to use with intuitive pictogram instructions
- Made in Germany
NYOS® REEFER test kits allows you to achieve precise and most importantly reproducible (i.e. in repeat measurements identical) measuring results.
- Number of Tests: 40
- Measurement Range: 1 – 160 mg/l NO3
Best nitrate test kit available By Jeff on 5/27/2020Jeff would recommend this product to a friendI've used almost every test kit available and this is by far the easiest to use and read. I read some reviews of people having issues with the values above 12 but I didn't have that problem. I use this for my reef where my readings are 12 or less and on my fowlr where readings are 40+ with no issue. I agree the drops can come out fast but once I got used to it it wasn't a problem.
Easy as it gets By William on 1/20/2020William would recommend this product to a friendIt’s very easy to use, equally easy to read, and accurate. If only the rest of reefing was so simple?!
Excellent test kit By David on 1/19/2020David would recommend this product to a friendThis is a very good test kit for nitrate. I especially like it for levels below 12. Above that the color changes don't match the chart well at all. Not a big deal as most of the time that's not the range we want to test in.
Wait until the color comparison! By Eric on 1/16/2020Eric would recommend this product to a friendI deceided to try this kit while waiting for Salifert. It cant get much easier and readable than Salifert imo, but wanted to try a new kit. This kit contains a dropper vial that is extremely delicate, the drops come out very easy, it also takes longer to get results, and there is a vigorous shaking stage which sucks:). However, the reading process is money! The control makes the color comparison so easy, there is no wondering between 2.5-5. Now does that really matter??? Probably not. Will I switch to this kit over Salifert?? Probably not. But for high range test (where Salifert lacks) FOWLR or other reason I would use this kit for sure. I would highly recommend.
Most straight forward test By Jared on 11/8/2019Jared would recommend this product to a friendThis test has come highly recommended for accurate, consistent readings. Paired with ease of use and fast results.
The only thing you have to pay attention to is the Part A dropper bottle has VERY soft plastic, and the drops will rapidly come oy from little pressure, so be very careful when inverting to use, or there will be too much liquid dispensed.
Best Nitrate test on the market By Greg on 9/27/2019Greg would recommend this product to a friendI just completed my second Nitrate test and this test kit is by far the absolute best on the market. While I would prefer a Hanna Nitrate tester for quicker results, that's not likely to ever happen due to the complexity of testing saltwater Nitrate with an electronic tester, and if it did. I would hate to see the price! This test does take about 7 mins total to run from start to clean up. However, there is ZERO guess work as to the color of the sample and the results are very easily to read. I just perform all my other tests as it is changing color. Follow the directions and you to will see how amazing this test kit is compared to all other test kits currently on the market.
Leaking reagent bottle and destroyed box upon arrival By Justin on 8/29/2019Justin would recommend this product to a friendThis test kit is simple, easy to use, easy to read, and anybody can do it. However, for some reason, when I received my test kit in the mail the reagent bottle was already opened and the bag it came in was covered in reagent. I don't know how much leaked out of the bottle but it's unfortunate that this happened. The box that everything came in was also mangled and without tape keeping the box closed, everything would have fallen out. The product is by far the easiest nitrate test kit to read which makes it superior to other test kits in my opinion. I would still recommend because of this but it might be a good idea to figure out how to ship it properly or ease up on the in house storing. I don't know why it was so destructed but it was nevertheless disappointing for this to happen.
dropper is terrible By Preston on 7/25/2019Preston wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe dropper is terrible it either dumps out 50 drops in a tenth of a second or it doesn't want to produce any drops at all. It ends up wasting a bunch of reagent, pretty disappointing.
Great unless you’re over 12+ NO3 By Reefahholic on 3/9/2019Reefahholic would recommend this product to a friendIt’s great on the low end, but after 12 it’s complete garbage. Colors aren’t even close.
Easy to read By Mikel on 11/28/2018Mikel would recommend this product to a friendI really like how simple this kit is to read. Much simpler than trying to match color to a card without a reference, I really prefer comparing the two vials. My girlfriend is color blind and even she can tell where the colors match up with this kit.
So easy By Carl on 9/22/2018Carl would recommend this product to a friendPurchased this kit because of others reviews and I also confirm: the dual color chart and vial holder works incredibly well. I am "color confused" sometimes as my grandfather was color blind. I feel 100% confident that I can differentiate and trust my findings. Priced right for what you get. I'm very happy with it.
Easy to use and helps determine lower Nitrate levels By Bill on 6/19/2018Bill would recommend this product to a friendLike many of us, Inused another test kit that only showed that my nitrates were under 5ppm. I desired a more accurate reading and found that with this kit. The kit is simple and relatively quick to use. The colors are easier for me to discern than others. One bit of advice when using this kit for the first time: The cuvette holding the tank water WITHOUT reagents is the one you place on the colored mat. I read the instructions and missed this and thought I had a faulty kit, but after re-reading them, I realized my mistake.
