Laboratory water treatment uses distilled water that, as a result of being stored, tends to generate microbial multilayers such as bacteria and archaea, which generally affect pipes and outlets of tanks and water systems. To avoid this spread, it is necessary to stop accumulating the liquid, as well as take into account the following recommendations.
Sterile hollow fiber membrane filters are an ideal option to prevent the creation of germs in large amounts of water for one to six months and can be used in water pipes, as well as to work on yeast, cell cultures, among other applications. microbiological. However, membrane-only filters are used in laboratories to produce sterile water, but they have limited filtration and can be used once.

It is important not to use water with endotoxin (toxic compounds of bacterial origin) in biotechnology, as well as in laboratories for the production of drugs, since they can cause problems to the human body. Through the filters: “The separation of endotoxins is carried out by adsorption on the membrane and occurs in parallel with the retention of bacteria. Hollow fiber membrane-based microfilters effectively retain bacteria and provide safe protection.”
