Demystifying system type, selection, purchasing, and sustainability considerations

With its ubiquitous use in every corner of the lab, choices made on water purification systems can carry an enormous impact on everything from equipment maintenance to experimental results. The type or grade required varies by application, and many labs need multiple types for tasks ranging from routine cleaning and preparation to sensitive analytical tests. The integrity of a laboratory's outputs hinges to a large degree on the purity of water used. 

Water Purification Resource Guide

As an important part of lab infrastructure, water purification systems feature strongly in operational planning with a sizeable impact on budgeting and lab sustainability goals. Investing in an efficient water purification system may cost more upfront, but the cost-effectiveness is seen in the lifecycle costs including maintenance, consumables, utility consumption, reliability of research output, and potential downtime. Modern water purification systems are designed to minimize waste and reduce environmental impact, which can be further supported by behavior. Choosing a system that conserves water and energy aligns with green lab initiatives and reflects sustainability commitments.
