I have a Hagen Iron test kit and have lost the instructions. I was wondering if anyone out there has the instructions that they could scan or post for me so I can test my iron levels.
I know it's kinda dumb but I can't for the life of me remember if it's 3 or 5 drops to a 5ml sample to test for Iron. I know it is one scoop of substance 2 in the sample to check for chleated iron but can't remember the color codes. Please if you could help would be greatly appreciated even a pic of the color codes and a write up would be great!! Thanks

Hagen Nutrafin Iron test kit

To test for Free (non-chelated) iron:
1) Take a sample of the water to be tested with the pipette. Use it to fill a clean test tube to the 5 ml line.
2) Add 3 drops of Reagent #1 to the test tube. Insert cap. Hold in place with finger and shake well to mix. Attention! Always use the cap. Avoid skin contact.
3) Place test tube in lab base and wait one minute.
4) Match the test color to the closest color on the chart. for best results, hold the test tube flat against the paper and read with a light source.
5) After use, rinse the test tube with fresh tap water to ensure it is clean for next use.

RnR, we need to someone how make it easier to search this thread. So lets say, if we have 3 pages, someone could just search topic for "Nutrafin Phosphate" and it would bring them right to that post.
