As water is the universal solvent and used in nearly all laboratory applications, it must be free of impurities to help ensure that you obtain consistent results with your experiments. The Lab Water Source webinar series will discuss everything from the fundamentals of buying and maintaining a lab water system to ensuring the water meets your application needs.

Covalency of research- H2O

Advances in analytical instrumentation like Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry used in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Academic research have increased the sensitivity of detection for trace level organics popularly known as small molecules. This can involve sensitivities in the sub-ppb (part per billion) or even ppt (part per trillion) range. Thermo Scientific Barnstead Water Purification Systems enable researchers to overcome daily reproducibility issues in Chromatography & Mass Spectrometry through the production of high quality Type 1 Ultra-Pure water.
