Summary
The curve is initially flat before increasing on a or BODTrak™II.
Answer
If the curve on a BODTrak™ II is initially flat before increasing, you might need to repeat the test with more seed. Insufficient bacteria will cause time lag. Bacteria acclimation can also cause the same curve (this can sometimes happen with standards and added seed). In both cases, one should add more seed or choose a different seed source.
