Details

The YSI ProOBOD luminescent BOD probe has built-in self-stirring to ensure a representative sample in the BOD bottle and to improve the response time. The optical sensor does not require a warm-up period, membrane changes, or electrode maintenance.

The greater stability of optical technology offers additional value by reducing drift and thus reducing costs associated with electrode maintenance and membrane changes. In addition, the technology is resistant to probe fouling from hydrogen sulfide and other gases. The smart, digital ODO probe stores calibration data, so probes can be interchanged between instruments without recalibration.
  • Smart sensor retains calibration in the probe
  • User-replaceable, low-maintenance sensor with +1-year life
  • 2-year warranty; reliable and serviceable, design reduces cost-of-ownership and reduces down-time
  • Probe body tapered to fit into a standard 300mL BOD bottle and international versions
  • Extremely quiet operation
  • No warm-up time required
  • Self-stirring to provide representative sample and increase response times

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Which BOD bottles are compatible with this probe?
The ProOBOD is compatible with standard 300 ml USA and Japanese style BOD bottles.
Is the ProOBOD suitable for field use?
The ProOBOD is designed for laboratory use, not field use. It is not waterproof and should never be immersed in a sample past the taper on the stem of the probe.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Nature's Water Quality Detectives Assisting Scientists

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.

Citizen Scientists Helping Protect Water Quality and Measure Impact of Climate Change

Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .

Marine Food Webs At Risk Thanks to Climate Change

Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.
