Monday, 01 February, 2021

Pure water is elemental to the success of your experiments. But finding the right water system for your research goes deeper than water quality alone. You need a smart choice that supports both your science and your budget — not only on day 1, but with every cartridge and filter change. Thermo Scientific™ lab water systems have been a trusted resource for science and industry. Our complete line of water purification technologies includes solutions for your most critical and everyday application needs, from electrodeionization to reverse osmosis and distillation, and reflects 130 years of innovations, like feed water monitoring, hands-free dispensing and effortless cartridge change-outs.

Don’t let impurities contaminate your sensitive experiments

Here are the most common water impurities that can contaminate your experiments and ruin your work:

With a Thermo Scientific Barnstead™ lab water system, the only thing you’ll have in your water is confidence. Barnstead water purification systems are engineered to remove impurities that threaten your research so you can focus on what’s important — your next discovery.

Barnstead lab water systems deliver:

  • Innovation
    Our water purification portfolio features advanced ergonomics and technology, including remote dispensing and UV intensity monitoring, that offer users full control with confidence.
  • Flexibility
    Laboratory environments often have limited bench space. Our portfolio offers numerous mounting options, small footprints and flexible dispensing options to provide you the luxury of designing a configuration that best suits your lab.
  • Convenience
    Our Thermo Scientific H2O Select analysis program and complete all-in-one box ordering gives you the confidence to select the right solution. Receive a complete water system using one part-number and have the components you need to easily maintain your new water purification system.

What Type of Water Do You Need?

When designing your water system, we suggest you take time to evaluate the applications and interest areas of the lab now and in the future. Take a look at the table below to determine what type(s) of water you need.

Barnstead Smart2Pure Pro UV/UF system — your choice for your Type I and Type II water

All in one! The Thermo Scientific Barnstead Smart2Pure™ Pro system converts tap water into ASTM Type 1 and Type 2 water. The use of ultraviolet oxidation and ultrafiltration technologies in conjunction with adsorption and deionization in the Barnstead Smart2Pure water purification system produces water virtually free of all impurities. These technologies have demonstrated the ability to remove nucleases such as RNase and DNase as well as pyrogens when challenged with known concentrations of the material. The Type 1 systems with UV/UF options produce reagent grade water with resistivity up to 18.2 MΩ.cm, TOC of 1-5 ppb, pyrogens <0.001 EU/mL, RNase <0.003 ng/ml, DNase <0.4 pg/µL and bacteria <0.01 CFU/mL.

The Smart2Pure Pro 16 offers the choice of a 30 or 60 L reservoir for customizable storage capacity and ability to dispense both ASTM Type 1 and Type 2 water.

Barnstead GenPure xCAD Plus Ultrapure Water Purification System

Gain flexibility in the lab with the new Thermo Scientific Barnstead GenPure™ xCAD Plus Ultrapure Water Purification System. Its advanced technologies allow for simultaneous dispensing from up to three remote dispensers for ease of use in shared laboratory environments. This lab water system comes with leak detection, electronic dispensing for fully automatic volume control and feed water monitoring that alerts users to fluctuations in the feed water quality. All consumables needed for start-up come with the system, allowing for simple ordering and setup. Available with UV, UF and TOC monitoring.

Suitable for even the most demanding and sensitive applications, all Barnstead Smart2Pure Pro and GenPure Ultrapure water purification systems exceed international standards ASTM D11931 Type 1, ISO 3696 Grade 1, and CLSI-CLRW.

Go Green

Smart Green designs mean a great water system for you and a smaller impact on the environment! Our engineers created water systems with the environment in mind:

  • Reduce -
    - Our cartridges use high quality resin to extend the useful life of the cartridge. Extended life reduces the need to replace your cartridges which, in turn, reduces the waste stream and improves your laboratory’s sustainability. You’ll use your cartridges longer, reducing the need to reorder, ship, handle and dispose of your cartridges.
    - Our units are designed to minimize the amount of water that is used during the analysis.
    - To provide the customer with pure water and low power consumption, our units go into a low energy mode after dispensing without sacrificing water quality for your applications.
  • Reuse -
    - Our cartridges are engineered with the environment in mind. The plastic cartridge casings and endcaps are constructed using virgin polypropylene to allow for easy recycling after end of life. The cartridge is assembled in a clean environment using environmentally friendly ultrasonic welding that minimizes energy usage compared to other joining as well as avoids the use of any environmentally unfriendly solvents. Our conscious effort to avoid chemical solvents and adhesives makes the plastic and resin suitable to be recovered, reground and reused for a variety of alternate uses.
