Formaldehyde (CH2O) is used in a wide range of applications, particularly in the production of materials and chemical compounds. Some of its uses include holding dyes onto fabrics, helping in the electroplating of metals, drug testing, development of photographs and biological preservation. It is important to monitor the formaldehyde levels to optimize its use, and to ensure the levels are not too high to be harmful to human health.


Hanna offer a Chemical Test Kit suitable for determination of formaldehyde concentration in a wide range of samples.
