Aimed at low-volume users, the Purelab flex 3 produces up to 10 litres per day of tap to Type I ultrapure water, while the Purelab flex 4 polishes purified water up to ultrapure standards. Both systems can dispense up to 2 litres per minute.
ELGA LabWater says the Purelab flex allows users to focus on routine test work, without having to worry about the water quality affecting results. The point-of-use display shows easy to understand information such as system status, temperature, alarms, time and Total Organic Carbon (TOC). The TOC reading, critical for sensitive analytical applications, is in real-time. Point-of-use filters remove biological impurities such as endotoxins, DNase, RNase and bacteria.
The company says these water purification systems have all the features of the Purelab flex 1 and 2. The handset fits comfortably in the hand for point-of-use dispensing, providing multiple dispensing options from proportional control (drop by drop) and auto volume to locked dispense for quick filling of large laboratory glassware.
Routine sanitisation is accomplished in minutes without manual handling of any chemicals.
The Purelab flex delivers ultrapure water that conforms to international water standards such as CLSI, CLRW, ISO 3696: Grade 1,2,3, ASTM, D1193-06, Pharmacopeia US, EP and JP. Validating the water quality is achieved using the system’s USB port to capture the data onto a flash drive.
