General description

Method: photometric 100 - 1500 mg/l Spectroquant®

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.
These special Hg-free COD Test Kits require the samples to be free of Chloride to avoid interference and wrong results.
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.


  • Pollutant removal in an experimental bioretention cell situated in a northern Chinese sponge city.: This study evaluates the efficiency of a bioretention cell in removing pollutants from urban runoff in a northern Chinese sponge city. The research highlights the importance of innovative green infrastructure in urban water management and pollution control (Shi et al., 2024).
  • Treatment of diluted palm oil mill effluent (POME) synchronous with electricity production in a persulfate oxidant-promoted photocatalytic fuel cell.: This research explores a novel approach to treating diluted POME while generating electricity using a photocatalytic fuel cell. The study demonstrates the potential for integrating wastewater treatment with renewable energy production (Yap et al., 2023).
  • Influence of Fe(2)O(3) and bacterial biofilms on Cu(II) distribution in a simulated aqueous solution: A feasibility study to sediments in the Pearl River Estuary (PR China).: The study investigates the role of iron oxide and bacterial biofilms in copper distribution in aqueous solutions, offering insights into sediment management and pollution control in estuarine environments (Kurniawan et al., 2023).
  • Residual pollutants in treated pulp paper mill wastewater and their phytotoxicity and cytotoxicity in Allium cepa.: This paper examines the residual pollutants in treated wastewater from pulp paper mills and assesses their phytotoxic and cytotoxic effects using Allium cepa as a model organism, underlining the need for improved wastewater treatment processes (Sharma et al., 2021).
  • Evaluating nitrite oxidizing organism survival under different nitrite concentrations.: The research evaluates the survival of nitrite-oxidizing organisms at varying nitrite concentrations, providing critical insights into the optimization of biological nitrogen removal processes in wastewater treatment (Liu et al., 2020).
