The SOEKS nitrate tester in the State Duma .​

Vladimir Zhirinovsky recommends Russians to buy SOEKS nitrate testers while Dmitry Medvedev refused to eat a pear with a dangerous concentration of nitrates.

The SOEKS nitrate tester was launched in July 2011. This is the company's original product, protected by international patents. This model is the third generation of the tester. Every year, many Russians suffer from food poisoning after eating bad vegetables and melons. This is why the tester became so popular among people who live a healthy lifestyle.

Production stopped in March 2015 due to the release of a new model.

SOEKS PRESENTS a modern Russian product made by SOEKS LLC, which is patented, certified, and manufactured in Russia. 

The SOEKS NITRATE TESTER is the winner of the BEST PRODUCT 2009 International Contest held as part of the PRODEXPO 2009 Exhibition. 

The tester is designed for measurement (quick analysis) of nitrate concentrations in vegetables, fruit, fresh meat, and infant food. 

To check for nitrates and measure their concentration, insert the probe located at the bottom of the tester into the analyzed product.  

Maximum permissible concentrations (MPC) of nitrates are already set in the SOEKS nitrate tester for each product as per SanPiN Unlike obsolete devices with a needle indicator where products were grouped, specific products are preselected in the SOEKS nitrate tester. 

When the measurements are completed, you will see the exact amount of nitrates in milligrams per kilogram of the measured product displayed on the screen, along with recommendations on whether the product is suitable for consumption (green, yellow or red light indication). 

The nitrate tester is a lightweight hand-held device weighing 150 g. All you need to do is just switch on the tester, select a product from the list, and obtain the results. 

An easy-to-use, handy, reliable, and accurate tester is now available and ready at your disposal!
