Read our guide with steps on how to improve sustainable laboratory practices, and reduce your lab's environmental footprint — without compromising on the quality of results. 


Overcoming challenges in genetics and genomics


White Paper: Overcoming Challenges in Genetics & Genomics Research 

Read this white paper to understand the importance of high-purity water in genetics and genomics research, and explore the challenges of accessing this commodity. 


Pure Water for Ultra-Trace PFAS Determinations


White Paper: Pure Water for Ultra-Trace PFAS Determinations 

Increased awareness of the hazards associated with PFAS has led to an increased requirement for the analytical determination of PFAS at lower and lower levels. read this white paper to gain insight into PFAS, PFAS testing methodologies, water purification design considerations and required technologies for PFAS analysis.

White Paper: FDA 483s & Non-compliance in Pharma 

Form 483s are very important to FDA- regulated companies, regardless of how many, if any, they have received. A single 483 tells a company exactly which areas to improve - or to correct - to remain compliant (and therefore operational). Downplaying the 483 content and, more importantly, not responding seriously and completely to the observations can have costly consequences. 


Water needs in pharma quality control thumbnail


White Paper: Water Needs in Pharma Quality Control

Water is one of the most widely used substances in the pharmaceutical industry. It functions as an ingredient, a cleaning agent, a reagent, a solvent and a product, throughout the drug discovery process, from the initial identification of potential drug targets, all the way to the manufacture and quality control of the final product.

White Paper: The Role of Pure Water when Studying Endocrine Disruptors & Phthalates

Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) affect the endocrine system by imitating or interfering with the body’s hormones. The health effects of EDCs are wide ranging and vary from problems with cognitive development and the triggering of cancer to physical developmental complications. Even very low levels can induce chronic effects, making their toxicological assessment particularly difficult.

White Paper: Optimizing Water for Life Sciences Applications

Life science applications face an abundance of challenges in an effort to deliver high quality, reproducible results. Limited resources, a shortage of bench space, restricted instrument availability and equipment downtime are just some of the factors that can reduce workflow efficiency and cause delays. 


Front cover for Whitepaper


White Paper: Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile organic compounds are chemical compounds, often man-made, that can be found in a wide variety of substances such as solvents, paints and industrial chemicals. They have a high vapor pressure and readily evaporate at room temperature so are present in the atmosphere and, when used inappropriately, can pose concerns for indoor air quality.


BioLabs 5 Steps Front Cover


White Paper: 5 Steps to a BioSafe Lab 

High-level biosafety laboratories are essential for public health, scientific research, and national biosecurity. This paper takes you through some of the key criteria to consider when designing, building and using biosafety laboratories at different levels, whether starting from scratch, or retrofitting your lab to be at a higher biosafety level than currently.


Clinical Risks Front Page


White Paper: Protecting Clinical Output from Water Risks

When lives are at stake, there is no margin for error. Your clinical analyser must receive a constant and reliable supply of CLRW* water, regardless of the quality of the feedwater available. Compliant CLRW resistivity of > 10 MΩ-cm restricts the concentration of ionic impurities to ppb levels or less, which is assisted by the removal of carbon dioxide.


Going Green Front Page White Paper


Going Green: 6 Case Studies in 1 White Paper 

In our Going Green Whitepaper, we discuss the effects of environmental water pollution, including how sources of water contaminants can be monitored, understood and managed, illustrated with a number of case studies. All this environmental research relied on the availability of ultrapure lab water.
