Why Choose CHEMetrics Chemets kits?

CHEMetrics Chemets self-filing reagent ampoules are a great way to test for dissolved substances in liquids. These visual test kits allow you to obtain results by measuring the color of the sample according to the color comparators provided with the kit. This unique method allows you to attain results quickly and accurately with minimal contact with potentially hazardous materials.

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, Chemets 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
  • low and high-range comparators 
  • 1 25 mL Sample Cup
  • Activator Solution
  • 1 mL syringe
  • Instruction Manual


The K-1605 Bromine Kit was designed to accurately measure the levels of Bromine in water from 0-2.2 ppm and 0-11 ppm. K-1605 uses the DPD Method. The bromine test method employs the DPD chemistry. Potassium iodide is added to the sample before analysis. Bromine reacts with the iodide to liberate iodine. The iodine reacts with the DPD (N, N-diethyl-p-phenylenediamine) to form a pink color. Results are expressed in ppm (mg/L) bromine as Br2

Bromine, a less volatile compound than chlorine is used as a sanitizing agent in drinking water systems, swimming pools, and spas.


1. Add 5 drops of Activator Solution to the empty sample cup. Fill the sample cup to the 25 mL mark with the sample to be tested. 2. Immediately place the Vacu-vial ampoule tip-first into the sample cup. Snap the tip and the ampoule will automatically fill.
3. To mix the ampoule, tilt it from side to side, allowing the bubble to travel from end to end. 4. Dry the ampoule and wait 1 minute for color development.
5. 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. 6. 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.
