General description

The Biopak® Polisher is an ultrafiltration cartridge designed to produce water suitable for molecular biology, biochemistry and cell culture when fed with Milli-Q® purified water. It is validated for continuous use for 90 days.

Application

Biopak® Polisher ultrafiltration cartridge is suitable for use with Milli-Q® IX 7003/05/10/15, Milli-Q® IQ 7000, Milli-Q® IQ 7003/05/10/15, Milli-Q® EQ 7000 and Milli-Q® EQ 7008/16 water purification systems.. Designed for applications such as molecular biology, biochemistry and cell culture (when fed with Milli-Q® purified water), the Biopak® ultrafiltration unit removes macromolecules and larger biological structures, such as bacteria.

Biopak® Polisher is recommended for a wide range of laboratory applications where bacteria, pyrogen, nuclease and/or protease levels must be controlled.
This includes small-interfering RNA (siRNA) research, RNA in situ hybridization, microarray development, or studies of protein synthesis machinery.

Features and Benefits

  • Minimizes risk of nuclease, protease, pyrogen or bacteria contamination.
  • Eliminates the need for toxic agents such as DEPC, therefore improving safety, saving time and reducing costs.
  • Bottom-tip is redesigned for a secured installation of the protection bell.
  • Easy maintenance: the polisher is easily installed and replaced; does not require sanitization.
  • e-Sure tag for RFID connection with POD enables full traceability (data management) and automatic consumable status monitoring on the POD′s touchscreen interface.

An ultrafiltration cartridge can be placed at the outlet of a water purification system to deliver nuclease-free ultrapure water.

Learn how water impurities can affect PCR and related methodologies. High purity water purified using ultrafiltration is suitable for PCR and related techniques.

Endocrine disruptors such as BPA can interfere with embryological development. This study shows ultrapure water from a Milli-Q® lab water system to be free of detectable BPA and thus suitable for embryology research.

Nuclease-free water (or PCR water) is needed in molecular biology to avoid sample degradation during PCR, sequencing, etc. Ultrafiltration provides a quicker, safer, and more sustainable alternative to DEPC treatment when preparing RNase-free and DNase-free water.
