Automated clinical analyzers require water for multiple processes, such as incubation, reagent and sample dilution, and cuvette washing. However, water impurities, including bacteria, particulates, ions, and organics, affect the results of the chemical and immunological assays and the performance of the analyzers that evaluate them. As a result, a reliable supply of high quality pure water is essential to obtain accurate and reproducible results during clinical testing.
