Merck has launched the Elix high-throughput water purification system for daily water volumes of up to 9000 litres.
Designed to operate at the heart of a central water purification solution, the system feaures full connectivity, providing authorised users with real-time remote monitoring via computer, tablet or smartphone with access to water quality data.
"Merck is committed to improving laboratory workflows with innovative products like our Elix line of water purification systems, that integrate seamlessly with existing systems and require little maintenance," said Theresa S. Creasey, Head of Strategy, Marketing and Innovation at the life science business of Merck. "Our systems are also designed to decrease energy and water consumption, without sacrificing water quality or ease of use.”
Product features include Merck’s Elix electrodeionisation technology with advanced purification, including Progard pretreatment cartridges, reverse osmosis and bactericidal UV lamp treatment. The system also boasts Merck’s ERA (Evolutive Reject Adjustment), technology, which automatically optimises water recovery and reduces water usage costs by taking feed water quality into account. It can be linked to a Laboratory Information Management System or Building Management System for enhanced efficiency and productivity.
The Elix High-Throughput system’s easy-to-use communications interface displays all of the details needed for daily operation. A large colour touch screen features storage level and dispensing information, water production and the status of system consumables, including step-by-step instructions from a system wizard for effortless replacement.
