Why Buy From Fondriest?


The Thermo Orion Dissolved Oxygen BOD Probe greatly simplifies the routine measurement of dissolved oxygen, particularly biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). The polarographic electrode allows dissolved oxygen concentration to be read directly in parts per million on any pH meter, eliminating the need for a dedicated readout meter.

When used with your standard pH meter, the Orion 970899WP Oxygen electrode provides a convenient interface for measuring biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). Built-in circuits convert the output to a signal that can be read by most pH meters. Standardization is fast and easy using water-saturated air or a chemical standard. An overflow funnel for use in BOD bottles allows measurements to be made in the same bottle before and after incubation.

Maintenance is easy with the pre-assembled membrane/electrolyte module. There are no membranes to cut or solution to pour. Each Orion 970899WP is packaged complete with two membrane/electrolyte modules, overflow funnel with built-in stirring bar, and batteries.
Notable Specifications:
  • Electrode Type: Polarographic Gas Sensing Combination
  • Concentration Range: 0 to 14 ppm (nominal)
  • Accuracy: +/-0.05 ppm or 2% of reading, whichever is greater

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
How long is the battery life?
The battery will last one year if the probe is used for approximately 4 hours a day.
After I install a new membrane, can I use the probe immediately?
After installing a new membrane, leave the probe in a BOD bottle with 50mL of distilled water for 30 minutes before calibrating.

US Steel Dumping Chromium: Citizens Fighting for Lake Michigan, and Drinkable Water

If you remember the movie “Erin Brockovich,†you are already familiar with hexavalent chromium, a toxic substance that was contaminating the drinking water of people in California in the movie ( and in real life ). Although on the silver screen there was a very satisfying Hollywood resolution to the problem, there has not yet been such a happy ending in real life. The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

Monitoring the Mississippi: Wild Celery, Redhorse and More

The Upper Mississippi stretches from headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, all the way to Cairo, Illinois, about 1,250 miles. It includes picturesque wilderness areas complete with waterfalls, limestone bluffs and expansive valleys. It has attracted many campers, hikers, fishing enthusiasts and people seeking to launch their favorite boats or canoes. It has also been a haven for environmental researchers. Since 2016, Jeff Houser is the Science Director for the Long Term Resource Monitoring element (LTRM) of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program (UMRR).  Previously, he led the LTRM water quality component from 2003 until 2016.

BOB and MARI Will Monitor Water Chemistry in the San Francisco Bay

Scientists have had nagging questions about how ocean acidification might be affecting the waters of the San Francisco Bay. But if you can't trust BOB and MARI with your research questions, who can you trust? That's BOB, the Bay Ocean Buoy and MARI, BOB's companion mooring for Marine Acidification Research Inquiry, of course. BOB and MARI are a bright yellow, five-foot tall buoy and its companion mooring, respectively. They are anchored near the Estuary and Ocean Science (EOS) Center of San Francisco State University (SFSU). SFSU researchers are collaborating with scientists from the University of California, Davis and other funders and partner organizations on the first long-term project to monitor carbon dioxide and ocean acidity in the San Francisco Bay.
