 Ultrapure water for critical molecular biology research

The quality of water used in molecular and cell biology is critical for the success of the tests performed. Molecular biology techniques, such as PCR, RT-PCR and sequencing, require Type 1 ultrapure water that is nuclease free, and cell culture should be performed with ultrapure water that is bacteria and endotoxin free.

To meet the stringent requirements for ultrapure water, we offer the Milli-Q® IQ 7000 water purification system. This system delivers consistently high-quality ultrapure water and provides precise quality monitoring at the point of dispense, so that you can be confident when performing your critical experiments.

For endotoxin-, nuclease- and bacteria-free water, the Biopak® polisher is an effective solution that easily connects to the outlet of the Milli-Q® IQ 7000 system. Benefits of Biopak® ultrafiltration to generate molecular-grade water include:

  • Validated in challenge tests to remove endotoxins (<0.001 EU/mL), RNases (< 1 pg/mL), DNases (< 5 pg/mL), and bacteria (<0.1 cfu/mL)
  • Improves safety in the lab by replacing toxic agents such as DEPC, often used to produce nuclease-free water
  • Saves time as freshly purified water can be rapidly accessed from your water system
