Merck Millipore’s AFS 40E/80E/120E and 150E water purification systems are designed to provide an economical and reliable water purification solution for daily water volumes of up to 3000 L.
The systems rely on two powerful technologies to produce water quality meeting Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water standards.
Proven Elix electrodeionisation (EDI) technology ensures constant water quality with low and predictable running costs, while ERA (Evolutive Reject Adjustment) technology takes feed water quality into account in order to automatically optimise water recovery — and reduce water usage costs.
“Biomedical laboratory managers are under constant pressure to avoid clinical analyser downtime,” said John Sweeney, head of Lab Solutions Business, Merck Millipore.
“Water is the most frequently used fluidic reagent in clinical analysers, and for labs handling thousands of samples a day, the choice of a water purification system is key to providing high-quality pure water and smooth operations.
“Our new AFS 40E/80E/120E and 150E systems incorporate the latest technologies, for robust and reliable performance. Our goal is to help make the biomedical lab more productive — and these AFS E systems do exactly that.”
Powerful 24/7 real-time monitoring and remote control, as well as a generation of enhanced services. These features, along with an unprecedented level of service, help maximise water purification system and analyser uptime.
Designed to provide quick and precise remote diagnostics and proactive service to avoid downtime.
Service starts with feed water analysis by a certified Merck Millipore Field Service Engineer prior to system installation. Then, over time, users can ensure the best upkeep of their AFS E water purification system with a customised Watercare Pact service plan.
Large touchscreen, for intuitive operation also supports the user with easy step-by-step instructions during routine maintenance.
System interface can be accessed from another location, using a PC, tablet, or smart phone through a web browser.
Mobile and customisable, the new range of systems is designed to make the best use of lab space.
The quiet, compact systems are mounted on wheels, and can be moved depending on lab requirements.
Users can choose from a number of options and accessories to match their specific requirements, including an online Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitor, degassing option, and sanitary sampling valve.
