Since our last update, we have started to work on putting together a list of tests (assays) for the colorimeter which include calibration curves and methods. The current list can be found here: www.iorodeo.com/colorimeter/assays. Right now this list only includes tests for measuring ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphate levels. It's a pretty short list, especially considering all of the tests we want to have on that list, and chances are you want to test (or are currently testing) something else with your colorimeter !
We have a wish list of assays which we are currently in various stages of working on. Most are requests from users and the list looks something like this (in no particular order):
- Atrazine (herbicide)
- Water hardness
- Magnesium.... and many more
Call for methods
While we continue to work on our assay wish list we would love input from the colorimeter user community. To this end, we have set up a Google Groups for the colorimeter for users to share methods.
If you have a protocol for measuring a solution with the colorimeter -- the assay does not have to be on the list above -- we really hope you will consider sharing it with the community on the Google Groups page.
We also encourage subscribers to use the Group as a place to ask questions, get help, start collaborations or join ongoing projects.
