MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)

Reflectoquant® Copper Test, Catalog No. 16984/1

1. Method

Cu(II) ions are reduced to Cu(I) ions by a combination of reducing agents. These Cu(I) ions react with a 2.2'biquinoline (cuproin) to form a purple complex, the concentration of which is determined reflectometrically.

2. Measuring Range and Number of Determinations

Measuring Range1) Number of Determinations
5 - 200mg/l Cu 50

1) for measurement of concentrations > 200mg/l Cu, see section 6

3. Applications

This test measures both Cu(II) ions as well as Cu(I) ions.

Sample Material:

Wastewater, especially from the electroplating and printing industries

4. Influence of Foreign Substances

This was checked - in the case of interfering ions up to concentrations of 1,000mg/l - in solutions containing 50mg/l and 0mg/l Cu. The concentrations of foreign substances given in the table lie below the limit at which the determination is interfered with:

5. Reagents and Auxiliaries

The analytic test strips are stable at least up to the date stated on the pack when stored in the closed tube at +15 to +25°·C.

Package Contents:

Tube containing 50 analytical test strips
Bar code strip

Other Reagents:

EM Quant® Copper Test, Cat. No. 10003, measuring range 10-300mg/l Cu

Universal indicator strips pH 0-14, Cat. No. 9590

Sodium acetate GR, Cat.No. SX0255

Sulfuric acid 25% GR, Cat No. SX1243M

Copper standard solution ready for use, 1,000mg/l Cu, Cat. No. CX1917

6. Preparation

  • Check whether the copper content is within the measuring range

Use the EM Quant® Copper Test as a guide. Samples containing more than 200mg/l Cu must be diluted with distilled water.

  • The pH must be within the range 2-6. Check with universal indicator strips. If pH is lower than 2, buffer with sodium acetate; if greater than 6, add sulfuric acid dropwise

7. Procedure

Observe the instructions for the RQflex Reflectometer.

The following applies to the Copper Test:

Measurement procedure A. Stored reaction time: 30 sec.

  • Remove 1 analytical test strip and immediately reclose the tube.
  • Press START button of the reflectometer and at the same time immerse both reaction zones of the test strip in the sample solution (5-25°C) for approx. 2 sec.
  • Shake off excess liquid from the test strip
  • As soon as the beeper sounds (5 sec. before end of reaction time), insert the test strip all the way into the strip adapter with the reaction zones facing the display.
  • Read off the result from the display. The result is automatically stored.


  • If the test strip is inserted into the adapter after the reaction time has expired, renewed depression of the START button may result in a false reading of the copper concentration.
  • At the end of each workday, cleanse the strip adapter thoroughly with water or ethanol.

8. Method Control

To check analytical test strips, equipment and procedure:

Dilute copper standard solution to 100mg/l Cu and analyze as described in section 7.
