Water Purification System Laboratory Applications - Elix Advantage from EMD Millipore

The Elix Advantage system has been especially developed to meet or exceed Type 2 water quality (corresponding to analytical-grade water) as defined by ASTM, CLSI and ISO 3696/BS 3997. The Elix Advantage System water also complies with the purified water requirements from the US, Japanese and European Pharmacopeias.

The Elix Advantage system offers reliable and consistent pure water saving time and money. The combination of Millipore’s patented Elix electrodeionization technology with the most advanced purification technologies, the Elix Advantage system uses potable tap water as feed to produce consistent, high quality pure water for all your lab’s needs.

The system provides pressurized, bacteria-free pure water through the E-POD (Elix Point-of-Delivery) units. The compact water production unit is adapted to laboratory space constraints and can be installed on the wall or under a sink, saving valuable bench space.

The exceptional ergonomic design of the E-POD allows for manual or volumetric dispensing of pure water to fill a variety of laboratory vessels. The system is modular and easily adaptable to evolve with the changes in the lab.

Key Features

The key features of the Elix Advantage are:

  • Pure water from potable tap water
  • Easy to install all-in-one pretreatment pack, which efficiently removes contaminants from tap water
  • Advanced reverse osmosis, with a constant product flow rate and reject recovery loop to optimize water consumption
  • Millipore’s patented Elix module, which uses electricity to continuously regenerate the resins and remove ions from tap water
  • Best-in-class monitoring: the resistivity measurement is displayed by the Elix Advantage system, and the system’s self-maintenance functions for the reverse osmosis membrane and cleaning cycles ensure optimum water quality


The applications of the Elix Advantage are:

  • The pure water from the Elix system can be used for laboratory applications such as reagent and buffer preparation, microbiology media preparation, histology applications, purified water for pharmaceutical applications (according to US, Japanese and European Pharmacopeias), and feed for laboratory equipment (washing machines, clinical analyzers, stability chambers, humidifiers, autoclaves, and weatherometers).
  • It is recommended to use Elix water to feed all ultrapure water purification systems.
