It tests down to 10 ppm, but there are some restrictions. For example, it's done using a liquid that has to wick up the test strip, so some things like a powder/flour may make the liquid to thick for the test to work properly.
The tests have instructions and discusses what you need to take into consideration, though, so it won't be too difficult to figure out. :-)
