The NHS has set an admirable and ambitious goal to deliver the world’s first net zero national health service. It has already reduced its carbon footprint by 11 percent between 2007 and 2015.
Purified water has long been an essential raw material used in clinical, pathology and haematology laboratories. Regardless of the application or the volume or quality of water required, there are certain critical factors…
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a powerful method of producing purified water for clinical and biomedical laboratories. However, poor specification and incorrect maintenance procedures can significantly reduce the quality of output from RO water purification systems.
Choosing, operating and maintaining a clinical RO water system should be straightforward. So, what are the specific problems that prevent the best results from being achieved?
Purified water is a critical resource for clinical and biomedical laboratories for a range of applications. In each case, consistent and high-water quality is crucial for conducting reproducible and comparable tests.
Deionised water, or DI water, has had the majority of the ions removed through a purification process. Clinical laboratories use deionised water for a variety of purposes, each requiring different levels of purity.
