Milli-Q® Advantage A10 for Water Purification

The most advanced ultrapure water system producing Milli-Q® water quality

Milli-Q® Advantage A10 has been designed to deliver the highest quality ultrapure water for all your applications, even the most critical ones. It is adapted to suit every user’s needs in today’s demanding laboratory environment. The system produces ultrapure, Type 1 water from a pretreated water source. It features two separate and distinct components:

  • The Milli-Q® production unit – compact, it can be placed wherever it best suits you.
  • The Q-POD®, Quality-Point-Of-Delivery remote dispenser – always within reach, it brings ultrapure water right where you need it.

Features and Benefits

  • Using an existing source of pure water as feed, the Milli-Q® Advantage A10 system delivers high-quality ultrapure water (resistivity of 18.2 MΩ·cm @ 25 °C; TOC ≤ 5 ppb). Two separate components — the Milli-Q® water production unit and the Q-POD® (Quality-Point-of-Delivery) unit — provide an ultrapure water solution adapted to today’s laboratory environments.
  • The low footprint, mobile Q-POD® dispensers are adapted to fill or rinse conveniently all glassware commonly used in the lab, from small 100 mL erlenmeyers to tall 5 L calibrated flasks, and deliver ultrapure water in manual mode (from low flow to high flow) and in automatic mode, delivering the volume selected by the user.
  • Q-POD® remote dispensers provide final polishing for Milli-Q® Advantage A10 water at the point of use. A unique range of Application-Paks final filters is available to remove specific contaminants right before ultrapure water delivery.
