I have never been able to measure nitrates (using API test kits) in my tank. Lately I have increased feeding to see if I could get some to show up (really trying to color up some pale SPS), no luck. I suppose this is a good thing though. I have a relatively light bioload with a good amount of rock. My skimmer isn't even that big (NW 110 on a 75).

I know the test kits are good or at least working as I recently had to put my shrimp/crabs in a hospital tank while I dosed Interceptor on the main tank. Within a few days I was measuring 30 nitrates on the hospital tank.
