The Picotech® 2 combines 254 nm UV (ultraviolet) technology with the quality performance of the Picosystem® to produce sterile ASTM and CAP Type I Reagent Grade Water for critical laboratory applications. Bacteria-free water is dispensed from the electropolished stainless steel spout connected directly to the UV chamber. The chassis for all Hydro point-of-use (POU) systems is the Picosystem®, which contains a highly activated carbon media for chlorine/chloramine removal and TOC reduction, and quality pharma-grade mixed-bed resins for deionization. Component synergy in every Hydro system guarantees quality, consistency and purity each time water is dispensed.
