The Kemio is a next generation measurement system produced by Palintest. It is a multi-parameter instrument capable of measuring a number of disinfection parameters:Chlorine (free and total), chlorine dioxide, chlorite and peracetic acid (PAA) in water, using sensor technology.
Designed to provide a high level of traceability, which is particularly suited to the food, beverage and brewing industries
Please note: to measure these parameters, additional reagents will be required. (The hard case kit does include reagents to perform chlorite testing).
Chlorine (Free and Total)
Peracetic Acid (PAA)
Clear pass / fail display for results You can label tests to have set limits so that when results are outside of your acceptable range they will be clearly displayed as a fail, reducing any uncertainty.
Simple to use Simple test method (involving sensors) reduces differences and uncertainties between users. Clear instructions are displayed for test methods You can easily account for a dilution if it is required to bring your sample within the instruments test range.When programmed, the unit will work out the correct result for you, with no multiplication needed on your part.
Results are fully traceable It has an internal digital data log that can summarize an impressive 10,000 results. 1,000 results can be viewed directly on the device. Each sensor is scanned into the unit before use and allows you to assign batch numbers. This also functions to validate the test type, range and expiry date
Readings are not affected by turbidity or other floating particles

Kemio Disinfection is being used to help combat the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, we have put together a list of top questions that people ask about using Kemio for disinfection verification with Covid-19.
Can Kemio be used with hazmat protection?
Yes, Kemio is a truly simple test method which can be used whilst wearing full protective gear. The touchscreen is suitable with gloves to enable you to select the correct test. For performing the test, you must simply fill up the sample, insert a sensor and close the lid; within 60 seconds your result will appear.
Do I need to dilute my sample before measurement?
Kemio can test free chlorine samples up to 25 mg/L, and therefore no dilution is required.
Chlorine sensors are available in two ranges depending on your application:
Chlorine Standard Range Sensors: 0.02 – 10 mg/L (KEM21CLO / KEM25CLO)
Chlorine High Range Sensors: 0.1 – 25 mg/L (KEM21CHR / KEM25CHR)
How do I clean my Kemio to ensure that traces of virus do not remain?
Kemio is IP67 rated and therefore can be thoroughly cleaned. A 75% alcohol spray should be used to clean the full kit and instrument, including the sensor contacts.
Special attention should be given to the sample tray which has been used to hold samples which may contain the virus. Palintest recommend that the sample tray is submerged into 75% alcohol cleaning solution or chlorine solution (1000 mg/L) for 30 minutes.
