A00111 RaPID Assay Pentachlorophenol (PCP) 100 Tube Test Kit by Modern Water

RaPID Assay® is a rapid field or laboratory enzyme immunoassay method for the analysis of soil and water for remediation, assessment, and industrial testing.


  • Rapid field testing procedure for analysis of soil and water samples
  • Quantitative data results with excellent analytical precision
  • Tests up to 50 samples at once
  • Results available in approximately 60 minutes
  • Magnetic particle immunoassay
  • Training available
  • EPA SW-846 method #4010

Test result type

  • Quantitative, semi-quantitative or qualitative

Samples per kit

  • 100 test kit (tests up to 80 samples)

Assay range

  • Soil: 0.1 ppm to 10 ppm as pentachlorophenol
  • Water: 0.1 to 10.0 ppb as pentachlorophenol
  • Other applications are also available
  • Range can be extended with additional dilutions

Sample preparation

  • Soil samples require prior extraction using the sample extraction kit (sold separately).
  • The sample extraction kit provides materials for 12 soil sample extractions with alkaline methanol.

Sampling time

  • Soil extraction time is typically two minutes per sample plus assay run time of approximately 60 minutes.


The PCP RaPID Assay® immunoassay test does not differentiate between PCP and other organochlorines. The table below shows compounds at the limit of quantitation (LOQ)- an approximate concentration required to yield a positive result at the lowest standard. The IC50 isthe concentration required to inhibit one-half of the colour produced by the negative control. It is also used to calculate cross-reactivity values to similar compounds.

Basic Test Procedure

  • Add prepared sample, enzyme conjugate, and antibody coupled magnetic particles.Vortex
  • Incubate for 30 minutes
  • Separate using the RaPID magnetic separator. decant and wash
  • Add colour solution and incubate for 20 minutes
  • Stop the reaction and read colour at 450 nm
  • Quantitive results and QC parameters are calculated and printed automatically using the RPA-1I spectrophotometer

Test kit components

  • Antibody coated magnetic particles for analysis of 100 test tubes
  • Zero standard, wash, enzyme conjugate, colour development and stop reagents
  • Standards for 0.1, 2 and 10 ppb as PCP
  • Kit control as 1.0 ppb as PCP
  • Disposable test tubes
  • Test kit instructions

Storage & precautions

  • Shelf life is typically one year from date of manufacture, with specific kit expiration date information provided on product packaging
  • Reagents must be stored at 39° to 46°F (4° to 8°C) when not in use
  • Store at ambient temperature 64° to 81°F (18° to 27°C) for up to eight hours
  • Kits must be brought to 64° to 81°F (18° to 27°C) before use
  • Do not expose colour solution to direct sunlight
  • Portable spectrophotometer battery should be charged prior to use
