General description

Method: Photometric, 25 - 1500 mg/L, Spectroquant®
The method corresponds to DIN ISO 15705 and is analogous to EPA 410.4, APHA 5220 D, and ASTM D1252-06 B.
The Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is a measure for the amount of oxygen consumed during the oxidation of organic matter, which gives a clear indication for the quality of a water source, it is for sure one of the most important parameters in (waste) water analysis. Our Spectroquant® COD Tests allow you to accurately quantify the of COD levels in your sample.
Select the right measurement range for your application needs from our wide range of Spectroquant® COD Tests.
The Spectroquant® Cell Tests come with prefilled 16 mm round cells and all the required reagents to perform the analysis according to the instruction leaflet provided.
All Spectroquant®Cell and Reagent Test Kits are equipped with the unique Live ID (2D barcode), which allows seamless method recognition and contains essential information such as lot number, expiry date, and automatic calibration updates.
