I’m hoping they provide more information on the new checker they are sending out. People trying to buy one used may have to be extra careful to make sure they aren’t getting a recalled version.
Oh I’m sure there will be those ******s out there trying to con someone and sell them the old ones!

Hi All, finally I received the checker today. I placed an order on 30th June directly from Hanna Australia and was advised that it may takes 6-8 weeks to arrived, however I finally received it after 3 months. I noticed that it comes with one powder and one liquid reagent, instead of 2 liquid bottles. I always use salifert for magnesium and havent try Hanna for this. Hope this works as expected :)

It is baffling seeing how so many people don’t know how to use a pipette tip and think this is the reason for inaccuracy. Ask any scientist to use a pipette without a tip on it and they will look at you like you have no clue what you are saying.
Except it wasn’t a pippette, it’s a syringe that leaks air around the tip and the drawing tip so you get air as well and not the correct amount of reagent. Many videos online showed the drawing tip completely falling off inside the reagent bottle!
