Whether you require pharmaceutical WFI water, USP purified water or high purity water, Western Reserve Pure Water has extensive experience designing, engineering, installing & servicing ultrapure water systems.
There are many organizations which set stringent standards with regards to water purity, and we comply with them all. Some of them include AAMI, ANSI, NCCLS, CAP, ASTM, and USP. Within our systems you can also find technologies such as absolute cartridge filtration, as well as deionization, ultraviolet systems, reverse osmosis, and many others.
Over the years, we’ve helped many laboratories in the United States prevent tests from being contaminated due to the presence of particles or contaminants in source water. We know how important water purity is for laboratories, which is why we offer you the best ultra-pure water on the market.
Guidelines for water purity were created by many professional organizations in the industry, such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS), U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) and American Chemical Society (ACS). ISO 3696, NCCLS and ASTM classify ultrapure water into 3 different types, depending on the purity level. Each organization has similar (though not identical) parameters.
The purpose of classifying water into different types is to ensure that the right purity level is achieved for specific applications. Some laboratory or medical procedures require a higher grade of pure water than others.
Western Reserve Pure Water has experience with all grades of water purification:
- Type I Reagent Grade Water is ultrapure water that is used for sensitive laboratory procedures, such as DNA sequencing, where an extremely high level of accuracy is required. Type I water has the most stringent filtration requirements and the highest purity standards of all water types.
- Type II Reagent Grade Water is pure water that is used in general laboratory testing and analytical applications, such as microbiological procedures. Type II water is the most commonly produced grade of laboratory water.
- Type III Reagent Grade Water is the lowest grade laboratory water and is suitable for rinsing glassware and most qualitative analyses.
Western Reserve Pure Water has systems capable of producing all three types of reagent grade laboratory water!
