Why Choose CHEMetrics Vacuettes kits?

VACUettes ampoules are designed for highly concentrated samples. They employ a patented auto-dilution feature that eliminates the need for a time-consuming and error-prone preliminary dilution. As a result, the entire test takes only 2 to 3 minutes, with a rate of accuracy comparable to a volumetric procedure. The basic design of these 7 mm ampoules is the same as CHEMets ampoules, however, a capillary tip is attached to the tip of each ampoule.

Safe and Reliable Results:

While traditional methods often require multiple steps and thorough preparation, these test kits allow you to obtain dependable results with a few simple steps. By simplifying the testing method, Vacuettes test kits reduce the potential for operator error. Additionally, each of the ampoules contained in the test kits is vacuum sealed which helps eliminate the problem of obtaining inaccurate results from stale or unstable reagents. These reagents are stored right in the tip of each ampoule and sealed in glass, thereby minimizing direct contact with the chemicals.

What's Included:

     -30 self-filling Ampoules


     -Diluter snapper cup

     -Micro test tube

     -Instruction Manual



The K-1510D Ammonia Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Ammonia in water from 0-30 ppm and 30-300 ppm. K-1510 D uses the Direct Nesserlization Method. The test kits employing the well-established Nessler reagent* to determine ammonia concentrations are applicable to drinking water, clean surface water, good-quality nitrified wastewater effluent, and seawater. In some waters, calcium and magnesium concentrations can cause cloudiness of the reagent. Adding a few drops of stabilizer solution (Rochelle Salt) will prevent this cloudiness. References recommend distilling samples prior to analysis. Results are expressed as ppm (mg/L) ammonia-nitrogen, NH3-N.

Shelf-life: although the Nessler reagent is stable, its high alkali content attacks the glass ampoule. The resulting precipitate interferes with color comparison. We recommend stocking quantities of CHEMets® and VACUettes® ampoules that will be used within five months. A two-month supply of Vacu-vials ampoules is suggested. Refrigeration will dramatically extend the shelf-life of these products.


1. Fill the diluter snapper cup to the -ml- mark with distilled water. 2. Fill the micro-test tube approximately halfway with the sample to be tested.
3. Holding the VACUette almost horizontally,
touch the tip to the contents of the micro-test
4. Place the VACUette between the vertical tip
guides on the inside of the dilutor snapper
cup and snap the ampoule tip. 
5.To mix the ampoule, invert it several times,
allowing the bubble to travel from end to end.
6. Dry the ampoule. Obtain the test result 1 minute after snapping the tip.
7. Place the ampoule into the center of the round comparator and hold it toward a source of light, viewing from the bottom. Rotate the comparator until the color below the ampoule shows the closest match. 8. For higher concentrations, use flat comparator. Place the ampoule between the color standards, moving it along the comparator until you can determine the closest match.
