Ultrapure water for the most critical laboratory applications.

Ultrapure water for the most critical laboratory applications.

What is Ultrapure Water?

Ultrapure water (UPW) is water that has undergone a very high level of purification in order to meet stringent water purity requirements. Water of this quality is required for semiconductor, power and laboratory applications.

Water for laboratory applications is graded by water type, from Type 1 to Type 3  (I to III). Types 1 to 3 are the most commonly used. Type 3 water is the lowest laboratory grade and Type 1 ultrapure water is the highest. The water types define the water specifications regarding the levels of contaminants such as organics, ions, pyrogens and bacteria.

Veolia Laboratory Water Systems

Veolia offers a range of widely used, high-specification laboratory water treatment products enabling the configuration of bespoke solutions to support specific applications:

  • Purelab Chorus is a modular range of laboratory water systems enabling the configuration of specific, custom solutions. Purelab Chorus 1 complete will deliver Type 1 ultrapure water at up to 20 litres per hour.
  • Purelab Flex is a range of ultrapure and pure water systems for laboratories. It features a sophisticated hand dispenser enabling the easy delivery of precise quantities of water of the required quality.
  • CENTRA RO System is a single unit that provides centralised lab water purification, storage and distribution. The compact size and footprint means that CENTRA can be located closer to where the water is needed.

Type 1 Ultrapure Water Applications

Ultrapure water is needed for some of the most water-critical laboratory applications such as:

  • High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
  • Gas chromatography (GC)
  • Atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS)
  • Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)
  • Molecular biology
  • Mammalian cell culture
  • In vitro fertilisation (IVF)
