M272 Chemical Agent Water Testing Kit

The M272 Chemical Agent Water Testing Kit determines whether water has been contaminated with nerve, blood or blister agents.

The M272 is designed to test for Lewisite, nerve agents (V- and G- types),
cyanide and mustard (H-) chemical agents which may be present in water.
Operation of the kit requires training.

NSN#: 6665-01-134-0885

M272 can be purchased in individual kits or by the case. There are 10 kits in each case. The kit contains:

  • A heat resistant, plastic test container with rubber stopper, connector, and liquid crystal temperature display
  • Chemical agent detector tubes banded with blue or red test reagents
  • Nerve agent test tickets
  • A plastic coated instruction card
  • Training simulants to demonstrate tests and results to trainees
  • Waterproof matches and striking strips
  • A tube holder that fits in the case lid
  • A clip, and extra rubber connectors

This product is considered toxic and must be shipped via LTL freight carrier with HAZMAT restrictions in place.

To test for nerve agents, first wet the provided test tickets with the suspected nerve agent and allow it to soak. Then press it against the reagent test patch. A blue color on the patch indicates the absence of a nerve agent.

To test for blister and blood agents, treat the water sample with the reagent fluids. A color change indicates the type and degree of contamination.

Samples suspected of (H) agent need to be heated before the reaction.

In 2012, the State of California’s FIRESCOPE Standardized Equipment List, listed the M256A1 as a required item for emergency and Hazmat first responders.

What’s in the kit?
  • Heat-resistant, plastic test container with rubber stopper, connector, and liquid crystal temperature display
  • Chemical agent detector tubes banded with blue or red
  • Chemical agent test reagents
  • Nerve agent test tickets
  • Plastic-coated instruction card
  • Training simulants to demonstrate tests and results
  • Waterproof matches and striking strips
  • Tube holder that fits in the case lid, a clip and extra rubber connectors

Easy chemical detection

The M272 Kit can detect and identify hazardous levels of nerve, blister and blood agents in treated or untreated water resources in about 20 minutes. 25 tests for each agent can be conducted with the M272 Kit. Agent detection in water is indicated by the production of a specific color change in the detector tubes or in the ticket. Use of the M272 Kit requires a minimum of training.
