Question
Is the Carbon Dioxide Test Kit, Model CA-23 suitable to measure CO2 in saltwater/seawater/brine samples?
Summary
Seawater compatibility for carbon dioxide test kits.
Answer
The Carbon Dioxide Test Kit, Model CA-23 (Catalog Number/Order Code 143601) uses the same chemistry as the Carbon Dioxide Test Kit, Model CA-DT (Catalog Number/Order Code 2064100) which follows Method 8205. This method lists seawater in the scope and application section, and does not have anything in the interference section that would be common in seawater.
