Researching Effective New Ways to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Columbia with PURELAB Quest
A new lease of life: How ultrapure water is helping with research into effective new ways to prevent cardiovascular disease at Columbia University
High quality ultrapure is required for some of the most water critical applications such as:
Preparation of buffers and solutions for molecular biology techniques including RNA extraction and lipid extraction.
Researchers at the Department of Medicine at Columbia University are studying the regulation of cholesterol and triglyceride to find new ways to prevent cardiovascular disease.
This case study covers:
- The research work being carried out including measuring changes to specific genes and lip extraction
- The challenges the team faced in the past due to unreliable source of ultrapure water
- The benefits of using water from PURELAB® Quest
