This article proposes an alternative to increase the reliability and reproducibility of a colorimetric method to measure arsenic (As) concentrations. The method of analysis developed incorporates a digital analysis technique to eliminate the operator dependence of results, and As concentrations are quantitatively determined from digital levels computed from photographs of the colorimetric reaction that emerges during the test. This technique allows the sensitivity of the detection to be increased at low concentration ranges, which is of fundamental importance for the detection of As given the current acceptable limit for drinking water. The results obtained show a very good correlation between As concentrations determined by means of analytical laboratory techniques and the method proposed in this research.
