<< 1)  Is there a real need to use gloves, eye glass protection
     for any of the following LaMotte test kits: 
     (i)   Dissolved O2
     (ii)  Iron
     (iii) Nitrate
     (iv)  pH
 2)  For the same tests above, is there a practical sereousness
     I should attach to the combustability warnings with air or 
 3)  Are there other safety measures I should take?
IMO no. Do rinse the test sample gear and mixed solutions to waste, but the
real possibility of personal damage is negligible. On my personal scale of
potential morbidity/mortality with highway driving set at 1.00, such
colorimetric assays score about ten to the minus six.
