Abstract:

A prototype WQAS-PM Water Quality Analysis Set-Preventive Medicine has been assembled using off-the-shelf test strip technology for the analysis of arsenic, magnesium, chloride, sulfate and cyanide in the determination of the potability of Army field water. This prototype set has been evaluated by in- house operators and by military field units as to accuracy, time required to complete the analysis, ease of operation, and clarity of individual instructions. High temperature storage of these test kits has also been evaluated. The results of these evaluations as well as recommended modifications are presented
