Is there a precaution to using metal clippers to open the FerroZine® powder solution pillows?
Summary
Opening FerroZine® with metal clippers
Answer
The reagent is so sensitive that it can measure iron from the steel clippers. Carefully open the pillows so that none of the liquid reagent comes in contact with the clippers or pipet the FerroZine® reagent from the bulk bottle.
