Measuring Biodegradation Respirometers

Respirometer is a device that measures respiration of living organisms. Respirometer determines aerobic or anaerobic biodegradability of solid or liquid samples in various applications.

Respirometer measures O2 and CO2 concentration in flow through the sample under controlled conditions. Additional gases can also be measured.
