A Guide on the Use of A BOD Incubator

In the microbiology industry, microbiologists keep a check on various elements like bacterial growth, cell cultures, etc. to test their product effectively. Thus, you can easily make use of the BOD incubator, which is one of the widely used testing instruments from Presto. This testing instrument will work to maintain the temperature for test tissue and culture growth. You can even store your bacterial cultures and incubate them at the highest temperature required. The use of these chambers has been increased in the past few years. Here, we are going to discuss the information about the BOD incubator principle, bod incubator specifications, features, and much more. So, let us get started!

Introduction about BOD Incubator

BOD incubator from Presto is one of the highly used testing instruments that is widely used in microbiology labs and other related areas to maintain artificial environmental conditions. This testing instrument contains high insulation with imported glass wool ergonomics that will provide you with low heat retention. You can easily operate this testing instrument with digital controls provided and get the results in digital format. This biochemical oxygen demand incubator will help in the growth of moulds and yeasts and remains unaffected by the temperature as well as outer conditions of the surroundings. During the test, there will be no loss of heat found in this testing instrument. The use of this testing instrument is majorly found in the microbiology industry because the need of testing samples at different temperatures is high. You can also read about the role of BOD incubators in laboratories as well. 

BOD Incubator principle

The BOD incubator is a highly used testing instrument in microbiology labs. In this testing instrument, the microbe samples that are used for testing will consume oxygen. When more oxygen is consumed by this testing instrument then, there will be depletion of oxygen. Thus, oxygen is used as an electron receptor and the organic material taken by microbes will provide them efficient energy to survive. This can be measured by COD or chemical oxygen demand procedure. 

The BOD incubator principle to perform the test is defined as follows:

  • The testing sample will be placed in an air-tight bottle. This bottle will then be put inside the incubator for a pre-defined time as well as under certain conditions.
  • When the oxygen will get dissolved by the sample then it will be measured before and after the incubation process. 
  • After that, the difference will be calculated to determine the BOD.
  • This dissolved oxygen is very helpful for the microbes to survive efficiently. 
  • If the dissolved oxygen result will be as per the pre-defined value, then this will lead to the generation of foul-smelling anaerobic bacteria. 
  • This will result in sample contamination during the test process and it will be declared as a fail.

BOD Incubator specifications

As we have discussed above the BOD incubator is a viable testing instrument that has been significantly used to provide controlled temperature conditions for accurate sample testing. With the help of this testing instrument, you will be able to maintain various environmental conditions that are necessary to conduct the test. Here are the technical specifications of this testing instrument. 

  • Temperature: 10°- 60° Celsius.
  • The capacity of Chamber: 125 liters
  • Dimensions - 590x815x950mm
