Birmingham Uni flex it again

flex_-_Product_20 v1.jpgThe innovative PURELAB® flex water purification system from ELGA Process Water, a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company, has proved so popular in the Department of Cancer Sciences at Birmingham University that a second unit has been purchased three months after buying the first. In addition, an SDI Inclusive+ water purifier was purchased simultaneously for deionised water directly from the mains water supply.  

Dr Angelo Agathanggelou, a postdoctoral scientist in the Department, explains some of the benefits staff have experienced: "The thing we're most impressed with is how you can programme the PURELAB® flex to dispense a set volume and then walk away. You don't have to keep your finger on the button or watch to prevent it overflowing. Unlike our previous water purification systems, the PURELAB® flex dispenses rapidly so waiting time is greatly reduced, plus its height can be adjusted to virtually any size container." 

Technical Manager Sue Rookes adds: "We're always looking for the best value for money equipment we can buy. Our water purification consumables budget can run to five figures a year, so it's important to be as cost-effective as possible. It's one of the reasons we also purchased the SDI Inclusive+ system, which connects to a tap to produce good quality deionised water to feed the equipment. The SDI Inclusive+ needed no capital outlay and helps us to prolong the life of our consumables and manage our budget better."   

The service contract with ELGA Process Water includes maintenance of all of the laboratory water purification systems on-site, including those of other suppliers. By having just one supplier, maintenance has become much easier and more reliable for Birmingham University than ever before.
