Environmental Express BOD bottles provide huge labor savings and improved quality in any environmental laboratory. Lightweight, unbreakable and recyclable, disposable bottles offer safety as well as convenience.

The US EPA recommends the use of Environmental Express BOD bottles be allowed for EPA approved Methods.

Bottles are formed from PET resin, the most recycled plastic available. Simply use once and toss into the recycling bin. Consider how many gallons of water per year you use washing, triple rinsing and DI rinsing your glass BOD bottles. With eco-conscious single-use bottles you conserve water and eliminate waste water treatment.

The use of clean, new bottles eliminates the problem of contamination from sample carry over or detergent residue. Our disposable bottles have an amorphous carbon coating which keeps oxygen from diffusing into or out of your sample. Bottles provide uniform blanks, high standard recoveries and quality test data.

Bottles come packaged and are individually barcoded and numbered.

Environmental Express plastic BOD stoppers work with all brands of glass and plastic, 60mL and 300mL BOD bottles. Easily identify what's in the BOD bottle based on the color of the stopper. The colored cap on the BOD stopper can be used to differentiate your samples as shown below or you can create your own plan:

Blue (D1025-BLUE) - samples and duplicates
Black (D1025-BLACK) - blanks
Green (D1025-GREEN) - quality control (GGA) samples
Red (D1025-RED) - seed control factor

Speak to your sales representative about custom color options (minimum purchase quantities may apply).
