CLRW and SRW Quality Water Systems

Water is the most commonly used solvent in laboratories and constitutes often more than 99% of the mass of solutions used in experimentations. The quality of water used in the lab is therefore critical for the success of the tests performed.

Water quality will depend on the proper selection, design and efficiency of the technologies used to purify water and on the accuracy and the sensitivity instruments used to monitor water contaminants levels. Stringent Quality Insurance (Certification, Calibration, Qualification and Validation) is mandatory to ensure that water purification and monitoring techniques are properly incorporated in manufactured products in order to deliver the expected end result.

The purification of water has also a cost and in order to optimize the operating cost of a laboratory while maintaining adequate technical standards, it is important to use the right water quality for each application.

Ultrapure (Type I) Water Systems

Ultrapure (Type 1) water is recommended for critical laboratory applications including advanced analytical techniques or cell culture and molecular biology experimentations. It should be produced on demand to immediately produce solutions as water at this level of purity will quickly pick up contaminants from the lab atmosphere as well as from the container in which it is poured.

Total Water systems are engineered to produce ultrapure (Type I) water. Some can operate directly from tap (potable) water and others from pure water. The selection of the proper ultrapure water system for your laboratory will depend on several parameters such as: feed water available in the laboratory, instant and daily volumes need of ultrapure water or ultrapure and pure water, the quality of monitoring of water quality and the level of certification required and several other points.

Pure (Type II) Water Systems

Pure (Type 2) water is recommended for regular applications in the laboratory such as the production of buffers or the final washing of glassware. Type 2 water can be conveniently stored in optimized storage devices. It is economically produced using the electrodeionization process in which a weak electric current permanently regenerates mixed bed ion-exchange resins.

The selection of the right pure water system for your laboratory will depend on several parameters such as: instant and daily volumes needs of pure water, the quality of monitoring of water quality and the level of certification required and several other points.

Pure (Type III) Water Systems

Pure (Type 3) water is acceptable for non-critical applications such as the feed to autoclaves or filling of heating baths. It is generally produced by reverse osmosis.

The selection of the right pure water system for your laboratory will depend on several parameters such as: instant and daily volumes need of pure water, the quality of monitoring of water quality and the level of certification required and several other points.

Clinical Water Systems

Clinical Water systems produce high purity water meeting the NCCLS and CAP standards and are specifically designed to feed clinical analyzers.
