Torulopsis candida has been used as the microbial biocatalyst for the estimation of biochemical oxygen demand [BOD]. A microbial sensor has been fabricated using a modified dissolved oxygen probe and coupling it with the microbe immobilized membrane. The analysis of various industrial effluents has been carried out using the probe and the results compared with the conventional method. The assimilation capacity of Torulopsis candida is evaluated and compared with that of Trichosporon cutaneum using the probe
