Question
What is the recommended seed contribution for BOD?
Summary
Seed contribution for BOD
Answer
When testing Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Standard Methods recommends that the seed contribution be 0.6 - 1.0 mg/L oxygen depletion, though this can be adjusted to ensure Glucose and Glutamic Acid (GGA) standards read 198 +/- 30.5 mg/L.
