Integral Water Purification System - Milli-Q from EMD Millipore

The Milli-Q Integral system includes an optimized and comprehensive sequence of water purification and monitoring technologies in a single unit enabling both ultra pure and pure water to be produced directly from the tap. It offers bacteria-free pressurized water through Elix poin-of-delivery (E-POD) units and Milli-Q ultrapure water through Quality-Point-of-Delivery (Q-POD) units.

It is possible to deliver water from the system’s exclusive production unit to as many as three independent PODs that can be conveniently located at different places in the laboratory. A color backlit screen is included in each POD allowing the user to check the operation of the entire system and the water quality at a glance.

The PODs ergonomic design accounts for the shape and height of regular laboratory glassware to ensure optimum user convenience. It is possible to deliver water at several flow rates from the mobile dispenser located at the end of an 80 cm recirculation loop. It is also possible for the user to select a specific water volume and have the Q-POD/E-POD unit fill any laboratory vessel automatically from a 100mL Erlenmeyer flask to a 5L calibrated flask or 20L carboy.

Key Features

The key features of the Milli-Q from EMD Millipore are:

  • Ultrapure and pure water is directly available from tap water from 60L/day up to 350L/day
  • Consistent production of superior quality pure water without the need to regenerate a DI tank, thanks to patented Elix technology
  • Easy pure or ultrapure water delivery in different lab locations
  • Easy and intuitive operation
  • Application-specific water qualities through customized final polishers
  • Built-in resistivity and TOC monitors designed to comply with the most demanding norms, including USP requirements (§ 643 and § 645).
  • System manager-specific interface with protection of key set points by a login and password


The applications of the Milli-Q from EMD Millipore are:

  • It is suitable for HPLC, LC-MS, MALDI-ToF-MS, IC, ICP, AA and most of the analytical techniques commonly used in the laboratory
  • When an ultrafiltration cartridge (BioPak) is used at the point-of-use, the water is suitable for genomics applications (quality at least equivalent to DEPC-treated water) and cell culture.
  • The water produced following the system’s pretreatment step may be used for basic laboratory needs, such as buffer and reagent preparation, microbiology media preparation, histology, dissolution testing (with UV detection) and rinsing of glassware.
