The Triton ICP-OES Test gives reef keepers access to the most detailed analysis of aquarium water ever developed. Now you have the ability to know what is in your reef tank and even better, how to fix it! Triton uses accurate testing to analyze the concentration of elements within your tank, enabling you to understand exactly what's missing, what's excessive, and what to do about it.
Developed over several years at his facility in Dusseldorf, Germany, Triton Labs founder, Ehsan Dashti has developed customized protocols to utilize Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emmission Spectrometry analysis (ICP-OES) to literally rip molecules apart with plasma that is heated to 10,000 degrees Kelvin for analysis. The ICP-OES machine has been adapted by Ehsan to test seawater for the ultimate in accuracy. Water is tested for precise concentrations of lesser known elements found in seawater that are either essential and missing, or detrimental and building up to high levels in the aquarium.
