Water for most laboratory applications is usually some form of purified drinking water. The unique ability of water to dissolved virtually every chemical compound and supports virtually every form of lift means that drinking water supplies contain many substances in solution or suspension. There are 5 classes of impurities found in natural and drinking water:
- Suspended particles
- Dissolved inorganic compounds
- Dissolved organic compounds
- Microorganisms and biomolecules
- Dissolved gases
The overall objective of water purification methods for scientific and medical applications is to reduce the impurities while minimizing the risk of additional contamination during purification processing.
There are many published water quality standards throughout the world – these groups include the American Chemical Society (ACS), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS), and the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP).
