The Tissue Core Facility has one Barnstead Nanopure Diamond ultrapure water system.

Using water purified of biological, organic and inorganic contaminants is essential for the preparation of buffers, medium and reagents used in culturing cells, enzymatic or chemical assays and analytical procedures.

Specific Description:
The Barnstead Nanopure Diamond ultrapure water system is connected to the buildings reverse osmosis purified water source and uses a four-stage deionization process combined with a UV lamp, an ultrafilter and a 0.2 micron filter to polish feed water to produce pyrogen-free, low TOC water with a resistivity of up to 18.2 MΩ-cm.
