  1. Copper Lined CO2 Incubators Fight Contamination in Liverpool University Laboratory

    CO2 Incubators

    Copper Lined CO2 Incubators were chosen by the University of Liverpool in their Biological Sciences Department to help to fight contamination and reduce the spread of bacteria within the university’s life science laboratory. These incubators are lined with CuVerro bacterial copper alloy surfaces, which are specifically designed to fight contamination within the incubator. Read more here.

  2. CO2 Incubator Accuracy

    CO2 Incubator Accuracy

    CO2 Incubator accuracy in tissue culture work is essential – even one adjustment or wrongly inputted setting to an incubator can alter an experiment in various ways, causing the experiment to fail. Which is why the NuTouch electronic control system makes NuAire’s CO2 incubators one of the safest options for tissue culture work. Learn more here.

    • Raw Water or Potable Feed Water – What is it?

      The quality of feed water, also known as raw or potable water, depends highly on its source. While deep ground water tends to be filtered naturally by soil and rock layers, water from surface sources such as lakes and reservoirs is subject to environmental contamination. It is therefore necessary to test feed water and implement appropriate pre-treatment measures to ensure it is of sufficient quality not to damage the downstream purification technology.

      Raw or treated water is physically characterised by measuring its turbidity, colour and odour; chemical characteristics, such as pH, hardness and bacteriological characteristics. Significant contaminants include dissolved ions, organic compounds, gases, minerals and microorganisms.

    • Primary Grade Water, Type 3 Water or RO Water

      Primary Grade Water, Type 3 Water or RO Water

      Primary grade water (Type 3) uses only carbon filtration and reverse osmosis (RO) technology and is the most cost-effective way to reduce water contaminants.

    • Total Organic Carbon (TOC)

      Total Organic Carbon (TOC)

      Water contains so many different compounds, making it impractical to measure them individually. If oxidised, water will produce the following fractions.

      • How Is Water Purity Measured?

        How water purity is measured?

        The purity level of water can be tested by measuring electrical conductivity or resistivity. On-line monitoring of total organic carbon (TOC) is also needed to validate the continued quality of water purification systems.
