Colorimetric hydrocarbons / PCB soils analysis kit

Allows you to identify the cause of a pollution and send only the relevant sample to the laboratory

The FTK colorimetric analysis kit is intended for the identification of soil pollution by petroleum hydrocarbons (diesel, gasoline, kerosene, heating oil, diesel, etc.), and aromatic hydrocarbons (BTEX).


  • Extremely easy to use
  • Carry case
  • No need for water
  • No need for electricity
  • No specific knowledge in chemistry or biology necessary to analyse and interpret result
  • Very rapid analysis time: just a few minutes
  • Low cost of analysis: thanks to its ability to detect the specific pollutant, only relevant samples are sent to the lab for analysis

Kit Contents

Each FTK colorimetric kit comes with a lightweight, durable carry case that is easy to transport.

The briefcase contains:

  • 15 phials of extractor reagent (10 ml)
  • 15 phials of dye reagents
  • 15 test tubes with fill index
  • 1 x graduated 10 ml burette
  • 1 x 50 ml mixing container
  • 1 x liquid waste container bottle
  • 6 x pairs of protective gloves
  • 1 x pair of protective glasses
  • 1 x stainless steel spatula
  • 1 x precision scale
  • 1 x Instruction kit/ Manual in French


The methodology is extremely simple to implement:

  • Take a soil sample,
  • Pour extracting solvent onto the sample,
  • Mix for 2 minutes,
  • Wait 1 minute
  • Pour the dye reagent onto the supernatant liquid (the extracting solvent responsible for the "pollution") that has been previously put in a test tube,
  • Mix,
  • Read the result.

The whole procedure, including sampling, takes no more than 3-4 minutes and can be performed by anyone.


  • Detects hydrocarbons in soil samples
  • Easy-to-use
  • No special knowledge required
  • Rapid measurement (<2 min)
