The Thermo Scientific Orion AQUAfast AQ3140 COD colorimeter is a single parameter instrument for determining chemical oxygen demand in water.

The AQUAfast AQ3140 COD colorimeter and COD reagents measures COD in the range of 0-15000 mg/L through dichromate method that estimates the theoretical oxygen demand, i.e. the amount of oxygen consumed in total chemical oxidation of the organic constituents present in the water. The colorimeter is designed to give accurate results that are highly reproducible. AQ3140 measures the COD concentration by photometric detection employing a linear relationship between absorbance and concentration.

The AQUAfast AQ3140 colorimeter offers a number of features designed to improve user experience, including two LED light sources for long-term stability.

  • (1) AQUAfast AQ3140 COD colorimeter
  • (1) Field carrying case
  • (1) Set of batteries
Questions & Answers
Can this meter be used in the field to determine COD in storm water?

While this is a COD meter that can measure chemical oxygen demand quicker than traditional methods, the samples require digestion using a thermoreactor.

Caring for the Chesapeake: Supporting the Iconic Bay Starts with Good Monitoring Data

The Chesapeake Bay is enormous: the Bay and its tidal tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline—more than the entire U.S. west coast. It is the largest of more than 100 estuaries in the United States and the third largest in the world. The Bay itself is about 200 miles long, stretching from Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. But the Chesapeake Bay isn’t just enormous--it’s enormously important. The  Chesapeake Bay Program  reports that its watershed covers about 64,000 square miles and is home to more than 18 million people, 10 million of which live along or near the Bay’s shores.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.

The Coevolutionary Arms Race: Fungus-Growing Ants and Social Parasites

Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding social parasites, Rachelle Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, knows just how important host-parasite relationships are to evolution. Like many ecologists, Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, found her passion for nature in childhood. “It began when I was a kid. I had this general interest of nature, and I loved to spend time in the forest, exploring,” she recalls. Her desire to work with wildlife was solidified in college. “I didn’t know exactly what direction I was going to head in but the ecology and evolution classes I took were really central to shifting my perspective on ‘what is biology.’ It opened my eyes to seeing nature in a different way,” she explains.
