MilliporeSigma, Burlington, Mass, has launched the newly redesigned Milli-Q IX 7003/7005/7010/7015 Type 2 water purification system.

The system provides laboratories with a reliable and consistent source of high-quality pure water that meets the requirements of critical applications, such as for microbiology culture media, as well as general uses, including preparing buffers and rinsing glassware. Water from the system can also feed equipment and instruments.

MilliporeSigma’s new water purification system is a smaller and more intuitive and ergonomic device compared with the company’s previous Elix generation systems. A digital touchscreen allows simple operation, the E-Pod dispenser is easy and convenient to handle, and the smaller footprint is free of tubing and cables for a clutter-free workspace. Integrated data management automatically secures data and provides rapid data access and full traceability for audits.

Other features are aimed at minimizing environmental impact:

  • Mercury free. Ech2o lamps use ultraviolet C technology to kill bacteria.
  • Water and energy savings. Advanced reverse osmosis recycles reject water, reducing water waste and overall consumption. ‘Lab Close’ mode minimizes water and energy consumption when the lab is closed for extended periods.
  • Reduced waste. Electrodeionization technology eliminates the need for chemical regeneration, avoiding chemical waste. Consumable lifetimes have doubled compared to previous generations, from 6 months to a year. More compact system, tank, and consumables mean less plastic has been used for manufacturing, packaging, and shipping.
  • Paper savings. Online data access supports paperless data management.
