    Announced today at the neptune meeting the Trident testing system.
    Working with Jim Welsh this past year. Neptune has developed the Trident to test Alk. CAL an d Mag in one unit. It will require the new Neptune model announced last year. Due to the complexed nature of the testing unit. Retail will be 500 to 600 dollars. With reagent at 40 dollars This will last as long as the amount test one does.

    He's saying if you set up the system to test 10 times a day your going to use more reagent than if you set to test twice a day.

    If you set the device to frequently test opposed to lets say once a day. The reagent will last far more then testing 2 3 times a day. Hope i was of help!

    Exciting! But please translate $40 to how many tests (understandably may be a function of all level, but estimate at NSW Levels)

    I think so. I still have my old apex, and litterally was thinking about selling it to get the newer one.

    Looks like a lot of Classic Apexs will be going on the used market soon.
