Milli-Q® Advantage A10 has been designed to deliver the highest quality ultrapure water for all your applications, even the most critical ones. It is adapted to suit every user’s needs in today’s demanding laboratory environment. The system produces ultrapure, Type 1 water from a pretreated water source. It features two separate and distinct components:
The Milli-Q® production unit – compact, it can be placed wherever it best suits you.
The Q-POD®, Quality-Point-Of-Delivery unit – always within reach, it brings ultrapure water right where you need it.
Milli-Q® water • Best-in-class purity
To reach the most reliable ultrapure water quality, Milli-Q® is built on an optimized purification sequence:
Pure water, ideally from an Elix® system, first enters the Q-Gard® purification cartridge selected based on the feed water source.
Purified water then passes through a long-life dual wavelength UV lamp, which ensures organic molecule degradation by photooxidation.
Next, the Quantum® polishing cartridge removes ionic and organic contaminants below trace levels.
Finally, the ultrapure water recirculates through a loop to the Q-POD® unit, where an Application-Pak removes specific contaminants critical for your experiments – Ultrapure water free of particulates, bacteria, pyrogens, nucleases, proteases, VOCs, endocrine disruptors and organics for LC.
Made only for Milli-Q® systems, Jetpore® virgin ion-exchange resin is used in all Milli-Q® purification cartridges. Selected for its exceptional performance, it can capture even the most weakly charged ions due to its kinetic capabilities. Both Q-Gard® and Quantum® cartridges also incorporate RFID technology. This provides instant visibility on cartridge parameters and also ensures a safe & optimal performance of your system, giving you full traceability.
Q-POD® dispenser • Advanced technology
The Q-POD® dispenser simplifies operation and displays essential data in an easy-to-use and compact device.
Facilitate your daily lab work - The Q-POD® remote dispenser is always within reach. Its convenient and adaptable handling enables both intuitive and precise dispensing. The user can select either a specific volume with the autofill key or manually press the plunger. Its multicolor graphic display allows easy interaction with the system and provides information about water quantity and quality.
Free up space on your bench - As only the Q-POD® is necessary for daily needs, the system can now be placed where it is most convenient – under the bench, on the wall… Up to three Q-POD®s can be used with each production unit at different locations within the same laboratory.
Get the right water quality for your experiments – Fitted to each Q-POD®, an Application-Pak provides final polishing to match the water quality according to your application’s exact needs. A range of POD-Paks is available for you to select from.
Total control for peace of mind
The combination of both resistivity and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitoring allows control over both ionic and organic contaminants that can impact research results. Calibrated meters are used to measure the quality of ultrapure water.
Accurate A10® TOC monitor
High-sensitivity resistivity cells
To always ensure the finest quality is available, the Milli-Q® Advantage A10 integrates advanced control settings with alerts & alarms that are customizable according to your specific needs. This is to validate your system is properly operating, providing the best working conditions for your experiments. With easily replaceable cartridges, a long-lasting UV lamp and timely service alerts, the system runs smoothly all year long. In addition, routine maintenance and troubleshooting procedures are available to assist the user in performing specific tasks. Millitrack® e-Solutions provide enhanced data management control, remote access capabilities to the system dashboard, and long-term electronic archiving for your Milli-Q® Advantage A10.
For full confidence in your Milli-Q® Advantage A10 system, it is delivered with a Certificate of Calibration for the built-in temperature and resistivity meters, and a Certificate of Conformity ensuring that it has been built and tested fully assembled following internal Standard Operating Procedures. In addition, all Milli-Q® Advantage A10 consumables are delivered with their Certificate of Quality. The manufacturing site is ISO® 9001 v.2000 and ISO® 140001 certified.
Advanced support & validation
A complete range of Services, including Validation support, is provided by certified Field Service Engineers using calibrated equipment and Qualification Workbooks. Millitrack® Compliance e-Solution has been designed specifically for the pharmaceutical, biotech and contract labs that follow GxP regulations (GLP, GCP, or cGMP regulations). Activation of Millitrack® Compliance software combined with Qualification Services will enable full water purification system compliance with record saving, electronic signature and auditing criteria guidelines such as those of FDA Title 21 CFR Part 11 or similar requirements set by other global regulatory organizations. A report on conformity of Milli-Q® Advantage A10 water quality to Type 1 water quality as described by ASTM®, ISO® 3696 and CLSI® norms, and to Purified Water as described in USP and EP is available upon request.
