Activated sludge test according to updated OECD guideline 209

For the activated sludge respiration inhibition test, the updated OECD test guideline 209 (22 July 2010) requires more replicates per treatment than the former guideline. To accomplish this new requirement and process the test within a reasonable timeframe, ECT recently established a multi-channel oxygen meter that allows simultaneous measurement and processing of respiration rates in up to six vessels.
