Column, Cadmium, for Nitrate determination  (Product # 50237A)

Column Efficiency
Before running samples, column efficiency can be determined as follows:
 
1. Calibrate with nitrate (NO 3 ) standards.
 
2. Run a known concentration of nitrite (NO 2 ) standard as N.
 
3. Run a matching concentration of NO 3 standard as N.
 
The column efficiency is determined by the equation:
 

 
where:
 
E = column efficiency
[NO 3 ] = concentration of nitrate standard
[NO 2 ] = concentration of nitrite standard
If the efficiency is less than 90%, do not use the cadmium column see the article What are possible causes of low nitrate efficiency when running Lachat nitrate/nitrite methods?

If the article on possible causes do not help resolve the low efficiency contact Lachat technical support or the local distributor.
