Engineer on a ship we service makes his own from this recipe:http://mad-science.wonderhowto.com/how-to/diy-lab-equipment-make-your-own-litmus-paper-using-cabbage-juice-0134730/

Myself, I use sulphur sticks for tiny hard to find leaks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulfur_sticks downside is you have to wear a gas mask when using them, and if there is a lot of ammonia in the air you just fog up the room with white smoke.

This German company sells through web-shop.

I use the paper on a roll, very handy as it does not get so dirty like the leaflets.
Product number is 90712

Now my turn:
Who knows where to find the glasses that you use for measuring oil and water from an Ammonia sample?
You know, the one that let ammonia evaparate and has a small lower end with measure marks.
I need Europe supply, possible Holland.

Sabroe used to sell them otherwise laboratory equipment supplies would have something as long as you know exactly what you want.
