Laboratory Tested and
An independent study with 8 data sets
compared disposable plastic bottles
to traditional glass BOD bottles, and
reached these conclusions:
"Improved Blanks: Plastic BOD
bottles do improve blank results"
"Improved Results: Plastic BOD
bottles might decrease bias for all
"Improved Precision: Plastic BOD
bottles result in better within-batch
While these bottles contain the required
300mL and use existing glass or acrylic
stoppers, they are slightly smaller in
size than standard glass bottles. The
trimmer size allows you to store more
bottles in your existing BOD incubator.
In addition, disposable bottles weigh
only 28 grams each, reducing the
weight by 85%. Best of all, after the test
is complete, simply empty the bottle
and toss it into the recycling bin! These
bottles are made of PET, one of the
most easily recyclable plastics.
Think about how much water you
waste washing, triple rinsing and DI
rinsing your BOD bottles. Most labs
report it takes two to three liters of
water to properly clean a BOD bottle.
Multiply that amount by hundreds or
thousands of bottles used and you can
see that a significant amount of water
goes down the drain each year. With
disposable bottles, you conserve water
by eliminating water treatment and the
use of soaps or detergents associated
To facilitate sample identification,
bottles are individually numbered.
Large 1/4" high numbers won't wash off
and do not interfere with recycling.
Acrylic Bottle Stoppers
While your existing glass or plastic stoppers will work perfectly
with our disposable BOD bottles, we offer these economical
acrylic stoppers as an alternative.
Pack of 25
The use of a cap over the mouth of a BOD bottle is
recommended by Standard Methods to prevent evaporation.
Our overcaps are made of polyethylene and fit snugly against
the rim and shoulder of the bottle.
