The WG 06 Food Poison Detection Kit has been designed for detecting dangerous levels of more than thirty poisons in food. The detected poisons include compounds containing cyanides, azides, chromates and sulfides (Group I Poisons), thallium, lead, cadmium and mercury (Group II Poisons) and ALL arsenic-containing compounds (Group III Poisons). 1 to 7 grams of sample food is required to undertake testing, depending on the type of food being tested
Three detectors are included in each Kit: the WG 61 Detection Card for Cyanide, Azide, Sulphide & Chro¬mate, the WG 34 Detection Card for Heavy Metals (Lead, Mercury, Cadmium & Thallium), and the WG 05 Detection Pouch for ALL Arsenic containing compounds.
Each WG 06 kit includes all the materials necessary for the complete testing of a single sample (except clean water), along with instructional materials to ensure proper sample preparation and testing.
Detection of the inorganic poisons listed above results in a distinct colour change, observable by the user in two to eight minutes. Using the WG-06 detection kit, prepared food can be tested prior to eating, while the food is still warm.
