Nitrate Test Kit Question

Can I use my API saltwater Nitrate test kit on my freshwater plant tank? In other words, is the test kit any different for saltwater?

I'm guessing it is not, but want to be sure.

API's Nitrate test kit can be used in freshwater and saltwater.

Yes, I saw that too, but my Nitrate test kit came as part of a master saltwater test kit. It didn't know if it the Nitrate portion of the kit was universal. It concerns me because the master test kit specfically says "saltwater". It's probably just for marketing purposes.

I think that API markets the same nitrate test for both conditions but with different labels.

I've never seen a freshwater only or saltwater only nitrate test kit.
