Sterile water is used in microbiology, cell culture and physico-chemistry laboratories, particularly in the preparation of culture media.
The preparation of sterile water is a time-consuming step that requires anticipation. Unlike a sterilization cycle at 121°C for 15 minutes, Steriwater is an instant water sterilization solution.
How it works:
The water is sterilized using a 0.2 µm filter which removes biological contaminants, including bacteria, molds and yeasts.
The filter is connected to the tubing, the whole unit is sterile and is fitted to gravimetric dilutors and peristaltic pumps. The water flow is ensured by a mechanical action outside the tubing (without risk of cross-contamination) using a peristaltic block.
