General description

This item number includes the System and one E-POD® dispenser.

Milli-Q® IX 7003 Pure Water System
The Milli-Q® IX 7003 system is a compact, ergonomic, mercury-free and intelligent water purification solution that delivers consistently high quality pure water on demand. The system features three separate and distinct components:
  • The pure water production unit offers flexible installation and simplified maintenance.
  • The intelligent pure water storage tank allows maximum protection from any external source of contamination.
  • The redesigned E-POD® point-of-delivery unit provides convenient, rapid access to pressurized pure water. A large touch screen allows for intuitive interaction and displays essential data for complete user reassurance. Up to two E-POD® dispensers can be used with each IX production unit at different locations within the same laboratory, or in adjacent laboratories.

E-POD® Dispenser
Always have rapid and convenient access to pressurized Type 2 pure water. This ergonomic dispenser is compact and intuitive to use, supporting an efficient working environment. Essential system functions remain close at hand on the E-POD® touchscreen interface.


The Milli-Q® IX 7003 Water Purification System produces pure (Type 2) water.
  • For critical lab applications such as: microbiology culture media preparation, staining solutions for histology and cytology, immunohistochemistry (IHC), electrophoresis gel and buffers, western blotting, immunoassays (ELISA, RIA), drug dissolution testing, biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), UV/Vis spectroscopy, titration, etc. It can also be used to prepare samples for laser fluorometry, in the synthesis and characterization of membranes for fuel cells, or in the synthesis of nanocomposites by electrochemistry.
  • For general lab applications: Sample preparation (dilution, extraction...), buffer and reagent preparation, glassware rinsing, etc.
  • To feed laboratory instruments like autoclaves, dishwashers, weathering and stability test chambers, clinical analyzers and slide stainers, hydrogen generators, and ultrapure water systems (e.g. Milli-Q® IQ 7000 system).

E-POD® Dispenser
  • The E-POD® remote dispenser is designed to provide dispensing Type 2 pure water flexibility, with variable flow rates and volumetric dispensing.

Features and Benefits

Milli-Q® IX 7003 Pure Water System
  • Delivers pure water quality that meets Pharmacopeia and ISO requirements.
  • Easy to use with carefree maintenance.
  • Delivers reliable Type 2 pure water with continuous quality monitoring.
  • Compact with space-saving installation options.
  • Mercury-free ech2o® lamps use UVC LED technology to inactivate bacteria.
  • Uses IPAK Gard® pre-treatment cartridge protects the reverse osmosis (RO) membrane to improve system performance.
  • Elix® electrodeionization (EDI) module delivers consistently superior quality pure water with no maintenance and at low running costs.
  • Intelligent pure water storage solution provides multi-targeted protection from bacterial, particulate, and CO2 contamination by using bactericidal UV lamp, a vent filter, automatic sanitization module (ASM), and an overflow sensor.
  • Automatic e-record archiving.
  • Integrated, simplified data management.

E-POD® Dispenser
  • Provides pressurized pure water, up to 2 L/min.
  • 3 different final filters can be connected to target specific contaminants and remove them right when dispensing pure water.
  • 5" touchscreen with bright, colored LCD display is easy to read and convenient to use, even with gloves on. It is located at eye level and orientable (120°).
  • Navigation in operating and dispensing modes is intuitive, without spending time going through multiples menus to find the information.
  • Graphic icons on the display allow all users to quickly and easily operate the system.
  • Comprehensive information displayed on the screen (water quality, system status, tank level, operating mode, volume dispensed) allows to always dispense the expected water quality.
  • Two modes to dispense pure water:
  • Variable flow (2 different flows, thanks to the dispensing wheel: low flow and full flow up to 2 L/min).
  • Volumetric water dispensing automatically delivers a specific water volume, from 20 mL to 100 L (in 1 mL increments).
  • The water dispenser has more than 1,500 positions (up to 30 horizontal notched positions, 360° around, and 54 vertical notched positions). Hence, daily operations are easier because the dispenser is well adapted to the size and shape of all the containers used in the laboratory.
  • Can be installed on a wall-mounted horizontal articulated extension, allowing for maximum bench space.
