Millipore Corporation announces the availability of a cost-effective laboratory water purification system that can convert pretreated (distilled, deionized or RO) water to ultrapure (Type 1) water. The Synergy UV system is suitable for low-volume laboratory needs such as buffers and solutions. After connecting the system to a pretreated water supply, it is simple to install the single purification cartridge, which integrates a variety of technologies. Routine maintenance usually consists of changing the cartridge every 10 months and the UV lamp every two years. For organic-sensitive applications, the Synergy system reduces TOC to less than five ppb.
