The PHOENIX Genome System
Designed specifically for genetics applications, the Phoenix Genome delivers 2.0 LPM of Type I, 18.2 Megohm water quality on demand. The water is purified using a staged purification process which includes high-purity ion exchange resins to remove dissolved minerals, ultraviolet light for bacteria sterilization and TOC reduction, and ultrafiltration for pyrogen removal and nuclease free water. As the water exits the system, a final filter removes particulates and bacteria to reach Type I water specifications.
The Phoenix Genome meets the challenges of delivering consistent ultra-pure water for critical research and testing in the life sciences. For applications like PCR, DNA Sequencing, Gel preparation, and general molecular biology, the need for RNasefree water becomes a necessity. Conventional methods use Diethyl pyrocarbonate (DEPC) treatment to in activate RNase enzymes. With the use of the Phoenix Genome, those processes are eliminated and contamination is reduced with an on-demand, ultrafiltration process.
