Why Water Purity Matters

How increasing water purity increases bioproduction consistency and reliability.

Water purity is especially important for high-sensitivity techniques, such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Water impurities are responsible for the majority of HPLC and LC-MS/MS errors, causing background noise and artifact peaks. These phenomena make it more difficult for scientists to accurately identify and quantify peaks of interest. Ultrapure water helps researchers avoid these problems and increase data reliability and reproducibility.
