Ultrapure water for clinical diagnostics is critical
We understand it is critical for clinical analyzers to receive a constant and reliable supply of compliant water to attain accurate and reproducible diagnostic test results. Water quality that is below accepted standards affects the chemistry of the tests and the general operation of the analyzer. This reduces the accuracy of the results and increases calibration times and reagent costs.
75 years of innovation experience
At ELGA we have gained experience from 75 years of innovating water purification technologies. Working in partnership with major clinical diagnostics companies, we have designed our unrivalled MEDICA range. Our reliable, compact water purification systems, with in-built wrap-around reservoirs occupy a minimal amount of precious lab space. Constructed from the highest quality components, the MEDICA range ensures bacterial control and optimal purity, as well as an uninterrupted workflow. Built-in technology results in predictable low consumable and running costs with the highest water quality. All MEDICA units have a bypass loop which continues to provide compliant water to the analyzer in emergency situations.
Water is vital to many different stages of the clinical analyzer process.
Purified water is used as a zero/ baseline standard in clinical chemistry tests and if the levels of certain ions are not optimal then this will affect the calibration stability and reduce assay sensitivity. Likewise, bacterial by-products, most notably alkaline phosphatase, can interfere with enzyme-based immunoassays.
Chemist Claudette Magalhaes Motta and biodoctor Audrei Bottini told us:
"Thanks to the constant water pressure flow and its recirculating distribution loop, there has not been any interruption caused by the water purification system since the installation of the MEDICA R-200 systems. The installation went smoothly and the MEDICA R-200 is easy to operate and maintain. The improvement to the layout eased the circulation of personnel, work flow as well as improved quality assurance for the analytical processes."
