Cross SensitivitySulfur trioxide in the gaseous form is not
indicated, but in the presence of 
atmospheric humidity this forms sulfuric
acid aerosols, which are indicated.

Soluble sulfates and other aerosol forming
acids are also indicated but with different
sensitivities. It is impossible to measure
sulfuric acid in the presence of these
substances. 
Additional InformationAfter performing the required 100 pump
strokes the reagent ampoule must be
broken and the liquid transferred completely
onto the brown reagent layer. Wait one 
minute before drawing the liquid carefully
through the brown layer with approx. 1/4
pump stroke into the indication chamber.
The measurement must be evaluated
