A range of sensors available to measure lead and cadmium heavy metals on the Palintest Kemio Heavy Metal unit:
Each box of the sensors is labelled with a QR code. This is scanned by the Kemio unit allowing for the input of batch information. Each pack also contains a barcode which validates the test type, range and expirydate. This is also used to match the sensor to the calibration information,confirming the test and only allowing testing to proceed if calibrations match. This means that only the correct sensor will work for each test. Sensors are single use. They can be disposed of with normal waste. If you plan to store your sensors for over a year, keep them in a fridge to ensure they reach their expiry date.
