Laboratory Water Purification

Water for laboratory and clinical applications is usually purified drinking water.  Impurities must be removed and additional contamination from water purification components and bacterial growth managed effectively. Depending on the water quality required a number of purification technologies are used to remove these impurities. It is vital to use a combination of water purification technologies to effectively remove contaminants to levels required for critical applications.

Types of water purification technologies

  • Reverse Osmosis
  • Electrodeionization
  • Ion Exchange
  • UV
  • Ultrafiltration

Today’s research and diagnostic laboratories require purified water that does not impact test results. As testing equipment becomes more sensitive and industry regulations become more stringent, life science and analytical labs must have complete confidence that their point-of-use water systems will provide optimum water quality, every time.

The importance of water quality is critical in laboratory water

  • The effects of water quality can often be overlooked, but as water is the most common solvent used in laboratories. Its quality is key to getting the expected and not ruined results. Similarly using poor water quality in a healthcare environment or in clinical diagnostics can potentially be life threatening. Understanding the importance of water is critical.
  • Internationally recognized water quality standards define the different types of water quality starting with Type I through to Type III.
  • Achieving the correct water quality depends on selecting the correct purification technologies and a system design that accurately measures and monitors contaminants. Producing pure water is only part of the equation; validating quality, storing water and maintenance are also important to ensuring water quality that meets your needs.
