Milli-Q Integral Water Purification System
The right water quality for all lab activities. The Milli-Q
Integral system includes a comprehensive and optimized sequence of water
purification and monitoring technologies in a single unit, allowing both pure
and ultrapure water to be produced directly from tap.
It provides pressurized, bacteria-free water through E-POD (Elix-Point-of-Delivery) units and Milli-Q ultrapure water through Q-POD (Quality-Point-of-Delivery) units.
Water can be delivered from the system’s exclusive production unit to as many as 3 independent PODs that can be conveniently located at different places in the laboratory. Each POD incorporates a color backlit screen enabling the user to check the operation of the entire system and the water quality at a glance.
The ergonomic design of the PODs accounts for the height and shape of regular laboratory glassware to ensure optimum user convenience.
Water can be delivered at different flow rates from the mobile dispenser located at the end of an 80 cm recirculation loop. The user can also select a specific water volume and have the Q-POD/E-POD unit automatically fill any laboratory vessel from a 100 mL Erlenmeyer flask to a 5 L calibrated flask or 20 L carboy.
To ensure easy adaptation to various laboratory applications, validated POD Packs polishers are available to remove contaminants that can impact specific applications (such as pyrogens, nucleases, bacteria, particulates, organics, etc.) just before water leaves the system. Configurations can easily evolve to match lab activity changes or extensions.
- Pure and ultrapure water is
available directly from tap water (no need to have a DI source in the lab) from
60 L/day up to 350 L/day (depending on model)
- Consistent production
of superior quality pure water (better than twice the quality of distilled
water) without the need to regenerate a DI tank, thanks to patented Elix
- Easy pure or ultrapure water delivery in different lab
locations thanks to the PODs
- Easy and intuitive operation
- Application-specific water qualities through customized final polishers
- Built-in resistivity and TOC monitors designed to comply with the
most demanding norms, including USP requirements (§ 643 and § 645).
- System manager-specific interface with protection of key set points by a login and password.
When the system is equipped with a 0.2 μm filter, the high purity water delivered by the system is suitable for HPLC, LC-MS, MALDI-ToF-MS, IC, ICP, AA and most of the analytical techniques commonly used in the laboratory. When an ultrafiltration cartridge (BioPak) is utilized at the point-of-use, the water is suitable for genomics applications (quality at least equivalent to DEPC-treated water) and cell culture. The water produced following the system’s pretreatment step may be used for basic laboratory needs, such as buffer and reagent preparation, microbiology media preparation, histology, dissolution testing (with UV detection) and rinsing of glassware.
