Our LAR™ BioMonitor™ is an online BOD analyzer for the determination of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), respiration and toxicity in wastewater. Using the BioMonitor, operators can now control their wastewater treatment plant in an optimal way. The BioMonitor is an efficient and economical control solution for aeration systems with the most accurate and reliable analysis of total BOD.
We are the TOC Leaders™ in high-temperature TOC, COD, BOD and Toxicity water analysis for maximum reliability, high-performance and fast response.

In contrast to the standard BOD5 method, our BioMonitor measures the total BOD. In the BOD5 measurement nitrification inhibitors are added to the sample, which suppress the degradation of nitrogen compounds. This results in the determination of the degradation of carbon compounds (carbonaceous-BOD) only and the nitrification part is not considered in BOD5 measurements.
As a wastewater treatment plant can be reliably controlled and monitored only by the determination of total BOD, the BOD5 is insufficient for this purpose. The BioMonitor provides an online respirometer, which operates like a miniature wastewater treatment plant. Our BOD analyzer degrates nitrogen and carbon compounds in special wastewater cascades, so that the meaningful total BOD can be determined within 4 minutes.
