5 BENEFITS OF PURE WATER IN THE LAB
Pure water is a vital aspect of your company’s research and testing capabilities. Low contamination levels are essential for accurate testing, diagnostics, biochemical reactions, and a variety of your lab’s day-to-day functions. Here at Culligan Water, we value your commitment to giving your clients the most reliable care possible. That’s why we have partnered with ELGA Water to bring you the best in lab-safe water purification systems.
Water is a well-know universal solvent. However, life science often requires the dissolving of organic compounds that is not compatible with normal water samples due to its high polarity. By superheating pure water to 200°C, we are able to bypass many of these limitations and create a more environmentally safe solution then other organic solvents, such as methanol. This greatly increases the application of pure water as a universal solvent, as well as helping to provide safer working conditions for your team members.
REDUCES CONTAMINANT LEVELS FOR HIGH SENSITIVITY TESTING
Contaminants can create inconsistencies in your datasets, hide early forming irregularities, and increase the number of baseline test needed to accurately measure variations. Type 1 Ultra Pure Water gives you purity beyond 18.2 MÙ-cm, allowing you to perform reliable, high-sensitivity testing in half the time. Decreasing the contaminants present in your water also allows you to better detect low expression biomarkers, more precisely control solution concentration and reproducibility, handle complex environmental samples, and create bloch-free sequence data analysis.
PURE WATER IS CONSISTENT
Whether conducting new types of research or testing current medical results, your lab relies on consistent day-to-day data accumulation. Careful measurement of each variable requires troubleshooting and customizing common techniques such as PCR to fit your individual needs. This can take days or even weeks of work. Utilizing a reliable water source, such as ultra pure water, can help eliminate many of these initial inconsistencies.
THE RIGHT RESOURCES HELP YOU SAVE LIVES
Accurate diagnostic testing relies heavily on clean water. Various contaminants can reduce the reliability of your total calcium analysis, alkaline phosphatase, iron analysis, and other types of medical test. Eliminating contaminates helps to provide the clear results needed for proper diagnosis and treatment, as well as helping to detect early forming irregularities.
PURE WATER SAVES YOU TIME & MONEY
Pure water allows you to better control variables and reproduce your previous experiments, provide optimal enzyme activity, extend the life and performance of your equipment, and save you time isolating potential contaminants. Each of these factors not only help to save you time and money, but also to improve the integrity of your results. ELGA Water offers additional features to optimize your lab results as well. For example, the Type I Ultra purification system includes options such as real time TOC monitoring, a full spectrum UV lamp, sensitive electronic dispense for flow control ranging from single droplets to 2 liters/min, and cartridge identification technology for validatable traceability. While the Type II Purewater is a popular choice for everyday lab work, with integral recirculation to ensure top-quality water at the point of dispense and improved laboratory productivity for reduced maintenance time.
