Summary
LR reagents on ULR methods
Answer
No, the Silica, Low Range Reagent set (Product # 2459300) cannot be used for the ultra low range (ULR) method 8282. The ULR methods require liquid reagents. The liquid reagents produce more reproducible readings and lower blank values by eliminating slight turbidity that may remain when using powdered reagents.
