The Elix High-Throughput system

Merck has added the Elix High-Throughput water purification system to its portfolio, which provides laboratories with a reliable water purification solution for daily water volumes of up to 9000 litres.

Operating at the heart of a central water purification system, the Elix offers full connectivity, providing authorised users with real-time remote monitoring using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

'Merck is committed to improving laboratory workflows with innovative products like our Elix line of water purification systems that integrate seamlessly with existing systems and require little maintenance,' said Theresa S. Creasey, Head of Strategy, Marketing and Innovation at the life science business of Merck. 'Our systems are also designed to decrease energy and water consumption, without sacrificing water quality or ease of use.'

The Elix system takes advantage of technologies that deliver optimum quality, analytical-grade water for use in regular laboratory applications and instrument feeds. The system combines Merck’s Elix electrodeionisation technology with advanced purification, including Progard pretreatment cartridges, reverse osmosis and bactericidal UV lamp treatment. The new models include Merck’s E.R.A. (Evolutive Reject Adjustment) technology, which automatically optimises water recovery and reduces water usage costs by taking feed water quality into account. The system can also be linked to a Laboratory Information Management System or Building Management System for enhanced efficiency and productivity.

The Elix High-Throughput system’s easy-to-use communications interface displays all of the details needed for daily operation. A large colour touch screen features storage level and dispensing information, water production and the status of system consumables, including step-by-step instructions from a system wizard for easy replacement.
