Dissolved oxygen is essential for the maintenance of healthy lakes and rivers, and aquatic plants and animals need oxygen to survive. An easy-to-use and accurate method to measure dissolved oxygen would be a useful tool for monitoring water quality in natural reservoirs, aquariums and aquaculture farms.
To fill this need, BIOTEC researcher developed a portable dissolved oxygen test kit. The kit offers an accurate reading of dissolved oxygen concentration in a water sample in a simple 3-minute procedure based on a colorimetric reaction with redox dye.
