The pH 4.5-10 test strips are an extended version of the 5.5-8 strips and come with triple pads for enhanced pH verification. They are also useful for science fair demonstrations where better precision rather than the full 1-14 range are needed. This can be very handy when testing different foods and drinks which occur mostly in this range.
While they cover a narrower range than the pH 1-14 strips the 3 test pads has the better 0.5 pH resolution; with practice, one can estimate 0.25 pH intervals. Typically only two of the three pads change colour at any given pH level which you match with the closest 3 on the color chart.
The pads on an unused strip are calibrated at ~pH 5.75 with the yellow pad at the end of the strip matching the yellow under "pad 1" (bottom of the strip) on the color chart. Changes can be subtle & appear different under fluorescent, incandescent or sunlight. So, experiments done in the kitchen might appear a bit different when repeated in a school gymnasium.
Note: These strips come in a special dispenser pack with 100 strips. The number of strips per pack is approximate.
In addition to this narrow range acid-base test strip, there are also wide range acid-base pH test strips.

Better sensitivity (0.5 units) than typical pH paper. Provides accurate results without the need for electronic pH tools in difficult environments for electronics. And NO calibration needed.

-Efficiency and reliability at affordable costs
I discovered this company accidentally many years ago when I was seriously ill with no diagnosis. I used the pH strips to double check the medicinal test strips I had bought in order to diagnose myself. At first I bought only a bag of test strips; now they all come in a plastic box. The quality is very good; the tests are reliable; the strips last for over a year. The company ships immediately, and the product arrives to Norway in just a few days. I once sent an enquiry about the pH in drinking water (low due to acid rain), and I had an email discussion with a professional who works with the company. All in all, I consider Indigo a serious and professional website, and the pH tests of high quality.

This PH scale is extraordinary. Very precise. Indigo's customer service is excellent. Very accommodating, attentive and prompt in their advice. Always a pleasure to order Indigo Instruments.
