Laboratory Water Purification Systems Essentials

Posted: July 18, 2012

Considering that water is likely the most utilized reagent in a laboratory setting, it isn't surprising that high-quality water should be a priority in every lab.  As with many other laboratory instruments, water purification systems have seen many changes in recent years; some of which include the development of new methods and a large increase in sensitivity.

A recent survey conducted by Lab Manager Magazine revealed that the most common types of contaminants found in water by lab professionals include particulates, dissolved organics/inorganics, and microorganisms.  Depending on your lab application, removing one or all of these contaminants may have a defining impact on your results.  For example, where cell culture applications are concerned, it is essential that your lab water purification system can provide you with sterile water.

Featured Lab Water Purification Question

Posted By: Meltemickin

Message:  We have been using Sartorius Arium 61316 in our laboratory for 3 years. I can not get distilled water any more. There is a message on the screen saying 'Wait for low pressure 0,59 bar'.  I have controlled inlets and outlets and the inlet pressure is okay. When I try to press menu or enter, it makes no sense. The buttons do not work. Would you please tell me if I can do something myself?
