  1. The Pico Pure Water System Goes Global

    The Pico pure water system has gone global! We’re proud to see the Pico system being displayed at Pittcon 2018 in Orlando, Florida. If you’re lucky enough to be in attendance this week, visit Stand 1404 for more details from the team. They will be happy to answer any queries you may have as well as demonstrating the system. We hope to see you there.

  2. Autoclave Feed Water Contaminants

    Autoclaves use saturated steam to heat glassware, solutions or surgical instruments in order to sterilise them. Feed water must be free from impurities in order to, not only avoid staining or corroding any items being autoclaved – impairing the sterilisation process, but to ensure the performance of the autoclave itself is not affected. Five steam feed water contaminants have been identified that are known to have a harmful effect on the autoclaving process.

      6. Ultrapure vs Feed Water - Comparing the 4 Types of Laboratory Water

        Ultra Pure vs Feed Water, Comparing the 4 Types of Laboratory Water

        There are four levels of water purity recognised in the water purification industry, each of which are used for specific applications in laboratories. The quality of water is defined through a series of measurements of conductivity (µS/cm) or resistivity MΩ-cm), Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in parts per billion (ppb), and bacterial count (CFU/ml). Here we explain the four types of water used in laboratories, as well as the processes and properties of each type.

      7. The Gurdon Institute Case Study

        the gurdon institute case study

        The Gurdon Institute was spending a lot of time manually pouring plates from bottles and drying them in a laminar flow. This took up a large amount of space and was very labour intensive. They also needed to manually mark on the plates what they were and the date they were made. The customer therefore required something to allow them to do this automatically. Read on to see how we helped them find the best solution for their needs.
