What is I-Kit?
I-Kit is a field test kit for iodate in salt with a newly formulated reagent which enables semi-quantitative estimation of iodate in salt (0-100 ppm iodine)
I-Kit for semi-quantitative determination at ppm level of iodate in supplemented salt has been a commercial success with a total sale of about ฿10×106 so far.
There are also international interests the open of bidding which the Unit has participated.
What is so special about I-Kit?
I-Kit remains invariant in terms of ability to give semi-quantitative estimation (shelf-life) for at least 2 years.
What is I-Reader?
I-Reader is a simple colorimeter using for measuring the absorbency of light waves in visible region (400-800 nm). This device has been designed specifically for measuring light absorbance in the region of Cyan-blue to Blue and Pink to Red color. The device is portable with the size of 9×15 cm using standard 9-V batteries. I-reader set comes with an I-reagent that is ready for determining the concentration of iodine (ppm) in iodated salts.
What is so special about I-Reader?
The performance of I-Reader have been tested and found that the device has high reliable in terms of analytical performance.
What is I-Reagent?
I-Reagent is a complete reagent single in a bottle for quantitative determination of iodate in supplemented salt (0-100 ppm)
What is so special about I-Reagent?
First in its kind, it has a shelf-life of about one year. Now with a simple digital color reader (manufactured by Mahidol University) the quantitation will be simple and cheap. It is expected to be a general success like the I-Kit.
