Purified water is one of the most extensively used reagents in a laboratory. It is used throughout experimental protocols in virtually every type of laboratory application: as a blank, for dissolution and dilution of samples, dilution of standards, preparation of mobile phases, and for media and buffer preparation. Purified water is therefore important in all laboratory sectors, from organic and inorganic chemistry to molecular biology and life science applications.
In the past few decades, research laboratories have demanded increasingly pure water, with a need to reduce contaminants down to trace levels: ions to ppt level, organics to ppb levels, production of RNase-/ Dnase-free purified water etc.
In this technology seminar, we will look at the various types of contaminants in the tap water, water purification techniques nowadays, and its monitoring. We will also look at how water quality affects our experiment results in the applications IC-MS, Cloning and DNA/ RNA purification.
