In The Market For A Water Purification System? 

Water is the most commonly used laboratory reagent; however, the importance of water quality is often overlooked. Because impurities can be a critical factor in many research experiments, water purity ranks high in importance. There are several types of impurities and contaminants in water such as particulates, organics, inorganics, microorganisms and pyrogens that can adversely affect results. 

Achieving water of a high quality requires the careful use of purification technologies and a method for accurately measuring and monitoring contaminants.

Top 4 Questions You Should Ask When Buying a Water Purification System

  1. What do you need the water for? What is your application & what type of water is needed? What is the source of your current water? How much water is required per batch/day? Are there special requirements for delivery?
  2. What is your budget? (This will determine the technology). What is the cost of ownership over five years?
  3. Where do you need the system in the lab(s)? Consider: top of counter, under counter or wall mounting the unit. What is the overall footprint/real estate of the system(s) and components?
  4. What kind of warranty and service is provided? Is the system manufactured to quality standards and which ones? Is this a pharmaceutical application that needs to be validated?

PDL 384 well plate?
I have recently got a 384 well plate from another lab which is a little old but they say it's good to reuse. I've washed it out and sterilised with ethanol and UV. The only problem is my cell line is only semi adherent and I was wondering if I could PDL the bottom of the plate? Is that something people do? If so, what volume should I use?

PerkinElmer AAnalyst 400 - Error code 1005: Detector saturation
I have been trying to calibrate for Zn and that error code pops up even for the blank! I have really high background readings and I have changed as many of the parameters as I could but I still get the detector saturation error. I have tried a less sensitive wavelength and a narrower slit width. Can I get suggestions on how to deal with this please? Advise this member.
