Pure water for Biotechnology

The importance of water quality

Focusing on the study of nucleic acids, proteins and enzymes, molecular biology research can be seriously affected by contaminating microorganisms and associated biologically active cell debris and products.

Apart from the removal of nucleases from the water, care should be taken to ensure that an incorrect water purity does not have an effect on the salt concentrations of prepared solutions for electrophoresis and blotting, as well as the production of reagents for DNA sequencing and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction). The effect of humic acid as a DNA inhibitor is often overlooked.

All of these concerns can be dealt with in choosing a purpose built, high quality water system which will provide water of Type I purity.
