Dilution of sample

It is recommended to take 2~3 samples with expected large difference to do pre-experiment before formal experiment and dilute the sample according to the result of the formal experiment and the detection range (2.92-40 μmol/L).

The recommended dilution factor for different samples is as follows (for reference only):

Sample type
