ariumĀ® pro Ultrapure Water System Outperformance meets cost control

October 26, 2011

The demands placed on the production of ultrapure water (ASTM type 1) for laboratory applications are extremely high. Indeed, ultrapure water is the basis for innumerable analytical applications like atomic absorption, ion exchange chromatography and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). In such fields, it is more important than ever that users get ultrapure water quality they can trust at the press of a button. With its innovative design, arium® pro for ASTM type 1 laboratory water sets another new benchmark. Not only does this brand-new system feature convincing high quality, but it is equipped with innovative and mature technology throughout.

Streamlined Processes

The system’s integrated glass interface display with its intuitive, touch-function and the user friendly menu navigation makes this trend-setting arium® series simple to operate. The menu guidance is straightforward, allowing the user to produce laboratory-grade water easily. Functions like volume and time controlled dispensing, coupled with freely adjustable flow rates give users ultra-high flexibility in all their routine applications. All processes can be streamlined, controlled and executed efficiently. Users will also appreciate the additional options like an activatable PIN code for basic configurations along with a variety of new data logging features.

Flexibility in the Lab

All four models in the arium® pro series are guarantors for dependable and optimal analytical results. For example, laboratory-grade water that is free of RNase|DNase can be produced for biotechnology applications with a TOC < 1 ppb and endotoxins < 0.001 EU/ml. The systems can be installed as benchtop, wall-mounted or below-bench units to meet the user’s individual needs and fit the available space.

Besides fast and easy handling, users will also benefit from the low after–sales costs associated with the new series. The purification components have an ultra-high capacity that prolongs the maintenance intervals and lowers operating costs. Looking ahead, the arium® pro series will soon be extended with a reverse osmosis system and a new ASTM type 2 system. That’s just Sartorius Stedim Biotech setting yet another milestone in their new generation of ultrapure and laboratory-grade water systems.
