    Liquid reagent compatibility

    Does anyone know whether the LaMotte DPD liquid reagent 1B, order code P6741G for their ColorQ Pro 7;

    Is the same as Taylor R0871C?

    I bought the Taylor kit from the your side of the pond, but LaMotte refills are more cheaply available this side, in UK.

    Generally I would not think the reagents are compatible across brands.

    Might try to contact LaMotte and see what they say.

    Re: Liquid reagent compatibility

    That's not powder, it's a liquid reagent. It would be more similar to Taylor's R-0001/R-0002 reagents. It doesn't create a solution with a lot of excess DPD in it like the powder does and so you can easily bleach-out a high FC sample. It can typically be titrated with the R-0871 but you have to add enough of the liquid drops to ensure that you are measuring all of the FC properly.
