Question
What is the difference between the different Nutrient buffer pillows offered by Hach?
Summary
Nutrient buffer pillow options.
Answer
For testing Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) using the dilution method, the following nutrient buffer powder pillows are offered:
  • BOD Nutrient Buffer Pillows, 300 mL, 50/pk (Product # 1416066) contains enough reagent per pillow to buffer 300 mL of dilution water.
  • BOD Nutrient Buffer Pillows, 3 L, 50/pk (Product # 1486166) contains enough reagent per pillow to buffer 3 L of dilution water.
  • BOD Nutrient Buffer Pillows, 4 L, pk/50 (Product # 2436466) contains enough reagent per pillow to buffer 4 L of dilution water.
  • BOD Nutrient Buffer Pillows, 6 L, 50/pk (Product # 1486266) contains enough reagent per pillow to buffer 6 L of dilution water.
  • BOD Nutrient Buffer Pillows, 19 L, 25/pk (Product # 1486398) contains enough reagent per pillow to buffer 19 L of dilution water.
Oxygen Demand, Biochemical-Dilution Method 8043 should be followed when using these options.
Oxygen Demand, Biochemical, Dilution LBOD Measurement, Method 10360 is the same method, but templated for customers using the Intellical™ LBOD101 Luminescent/Optical Dissolved Oxygen (LDO) Sensor for BOD Measurements, 1 m cable (Product # LBOD10101)

Respirometric BOD Nutrient Buffer Solution Pillows, pk/50 (Product # 2962266) is specifically designed to be used with the BODTrak™ II Respirometric BOD Apparatus (Product # 2952400) which uses the respirometric method, not for the dilution method.

The instructions for running this method can be found in the BODTrak™ II User Manual and Biochemical Oxygen Demand, BOD, Respirometric Method 10099.
