The rapid determination of waste-water quality of waste-water treatment plants in terms of pollutional strength, i.e. biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) is difficult or even impossible using the chemical determination method. The present study reports the determination of BOD within minutes using microbial BOD sensors, as compared to the 5-day determination(More)
Nothapodytes nimmoniana Graham is an important medicinal tree species occurring in the Western Ghats, a mega diversity hotspot in Southern India. The inner stem bark of the tree contains an important anti-cancer alkaloid, camptothecine (CTP), for which the natural population of the trees is heavily extracted. In this paper, we report the development of a(More)
An attempt is made to validate the use of a microbial consortium in BOD analysis. A uniform dehydrated microbial consortium, `BODSEED', has been used as a seeding material in BOD analysis of synthetic and other industrial effluents. Statistical analysis of the obtained BOD values shows that conventional seeding material such as sewage can be replaced by(More)
