Science - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / Test results from pharmaceutical certificate of analysis
German term or phrase: Aktiv-O
This is from a statement on the test results (Prüfergebnisse).

The term in question falls under the column that has the heading Prüfmerkmal.
Under Prüfermerkmal, the following are listed:

Chargen Nr.
Menge pro Charge
Aktiv-O
Peroxid

The "Dimension" of Aktiv-O is measured in percentage.

This is from a German pharmaceutical company's records to be translated into U.S. English.

Is this an active ingredient?

Any constructive tips on this would be appreciated.

active oxygen
Explanation:
O is the chemical symbol/abbreviation for oxygen, so I think this refers to "Aktivsauerstoff":

"Wasserpflege mit Aktivsauerstoff

Eine interessante Alternative zu Chlor ist die Wasserpflege mit ***Aktivsauerstoff***. Wie es funktioniert.

Seit einigen Jahren sind für den privaten Schwimmbadbereich Produkte zur Desinfektion und Aufbereitung von Schwimmbadwasser erhältlich, die aus ***Peroxiden*** ***Aktivsauerstoff*** abspalten (beispielsweise Wasserstoffperoxid, Kaliummonopersulfat).

You can probably use the abbreviation "active O" in English, too:

"....Thus the N–O bond breaking with formation of the ***active O*** can take place with the ethanol dehydrogenation following"
