API Saltwater kit used in Freshwater?

I've got this salt water kit which contains nitrate/nitrite/ph/high ph/ammonia tests. The result cards say "saltwater nitrate" "Saltwater high ph"... etc. Are the test solutions different for fresh or would the readings be accurate for fresh?

Thanks guys!

The same reagents I think. pH is not though. They use a higher pH indicator. Nitrites may be different too but you can look up the MSDS from API and find out.
