Product Focus: Water Purification Systems
Water quality affects almost every result a laboratory generates. While lab workers tend to treat water as just another utility, lab managers often overspecify water quality.

“Laboratories typically use pure or ultrapure water, but more pure isn’t always better,” says Frank Firicano, division manager at Aries Filter Works (West Berlin, NJ). Aries, a division of filtration media manufacturer ResinTech, turns ion exchange and activated carbon media into point-of-use products.

Because of operating costs and maintenance, operating with ultrapure water may sometimes be overkill. Firicano cautions customers who want their water systems to serve every conceivable situation, “You pay for that.”

Sotax Corporation APW™ Automated Sample Preparation Workstation

After weighing the sample, the APW uses a focused sonication probe coupled with a UV temperature sensor to deliver sample disintegration without over-heating. Combined with the vortex station, the APW can achieve efficient and reproducible extractions for even the most challenging of sample formulations. Common dosage forms include API, tablets, gels, creams and other lose dose formulations. Cleaning between samples is easily programmed into the method to eliminate sample carry-over. The updated APW is enhanced to reduce cycle times by adding efficiency to the dilution process.
