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
  • Probe Dimensions: 17cm length (6.7")
  • Weight: 272 grams (0.60 lbs)
  • Power: External 110-230 VAC, 50-60 Hz power supply with DC input to probe; U.S. and International receptacle
  • Warranty: 2-year probe warranty; 1-year sensor cap warranty
  • Cable: 3m (9 ft)
  • Sensor Type: Optical (dynamic luminescence quenching lifetime detection)
  • Flow Dependence: None - non-consumptive method (stirring will increase response time with no affect on accuracy)
  • Ratings: RoHS, CE, WEEE, IP-65, Made in USA
  • Response Time: T95 = 22 seconds with stirring; T95 = 40 seconds without stirring
  • (1) ProOBOD probe
  • (1) 6260 ProOBOD power supply
Questions & Answers
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.

The Frozen Frontier: Chasing Data in Antarctica

For Paul Savoy, sailing on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel as part of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) has been a dream come true, a “mountain top” for his career. “I grew up reading about the age of exploration, and the great polar explorers back in the day. Antarctica is one of the last remaining frontiers, along with the deep ocean and outer space. I was delighted to discover Antarctic research covers all three, with deep ocean research happening on the icebreakers and cosmological experiments at the South Pole. I’ve been applying for a job down here since I was 18. I got shortlisted a few times, but never actually got picked up until I was 32. Now I’m 35, and finally headed to the ice.

New Environmental Sensors and Data Acquisition Knowledge Base

NexSens Technology has worked for over two decades to simplify complex environmental data acquisition systems. The core components of these systems have always been the development of data loggers, configuration and data management software, and simplified sensor integrations. NexSens is excited to bring a new dimension to another critical aspect of real-time environmental monitoring: environmental sensors and data acquisition documentation through the revamped online Knowledge Base. The Knowledge Base serves as a living library, featuring the most thorough information, start-up instructions, integration guides, and other documentation available for NexSens systems and products.

The Tiniest Cars: Understanding the Effects of Microplastics on Coral

Like the microplastics she studies, Keiko Wilkins arrived at this point in her life through a long, multi-dimensional, and at times unexpected journey. Today she is a second-year graduate student in the doctoral program at the University of Hawaii , a graduate assistant at Kewalo Marine Laboratory , but her journey began in Pickerington, Ohio, a far cry from the sea. “I always had an interest in water, and I swam competitively,” she recalls. “I knew I wanted to study biology, but did I want to do research or education? So I explored biology further. My academic advisor worked on lakes and I focused on zooplankton in lakes, and changes in their populations. Fascinated by the ocean, I wanted to study it, but in Ohio, the ocean is, of course, out of reach.
