GAS8LA Chlorine (Cl2) Standard Gastec Detector Tubes
Gas detector tubes are glass tubes that are filled with a chemical reagent that absorbs and reacts with the target gas or vapour being measured. Gastec tubes do not contain hazardous substances
A colorimetric stain (a colour change) is created. For most tubes, the concentration is read directly from the pinpoint accurate measurement scale on each tube.
The Gastec detector tube system is comprised of a handheld Gastec air sampling pump and Gastec detector tubes
Shelf Life – a1-cbiss will never dispatch detector tubes with less than 3 months remaining before expiry. a1-cbiss employ a stock rotation policy of first in, first out. Specific shelf life requirements must be identified at the point of order placement (use the comment box in the checkout process). The expiry date is printed clearly on the front of the detector tube packet.

Q. In some instances GAS8LA becomes yellow in colour, but the pale pink colour doesn’t appear. Why is that?
A. The unexpected yellow colour means that there is too much chlorine to measure in the sample. Some Gastec tubes do not always change to colours as the instructions indicate if there are dozens or hundreds of times of target gases in the sample beyond each specified measuring range.
