The paper describes how Concawe University in the UK tested many of the commercially available TPH test kits in 2021. They found that RemScan provides:

  • Decision-making results with a fast turnaround time and low cost per sample (Table 1 page V).
  • Industry-leading sensitivity range of 0.1 to 100,000 mg/​kg with excellent linearity and accuracy (Table 4, page 12).
  • Portable, both field- and lab-deployable, and no consumables required for operation.
