Pall (East Hills, New York) said it is bringing its water purification expertise to the laboratory market with the introduction of the Pall Cascada Lab Water Systems.

The Cascada System is designed to enable laboratories to achieve the highest water purity "through a series of separation and purification steps in a single box on demand," Pall said. Four polishing systems, with configurations to meet a range of applications required are available. A pretreatment system is also available to protect and extend the life of the polishers, important in cases where there is poor feedwater quality.

"As the lab market becomes increasingly complex and demanding, customers need trustworthy providers that are deeply entrenched in water purification," said Ken Harris, president of Pall Life Sciences New Technology. "Pall's entry into this marketplace combines more than a half century experience in the development of the most advanced water purification technologies used by a host of industries worldwide."

"The lab water market continues to expand, and rapid technological growth in regions of the world, such as Asia and Latin America, still have many unmet needs. We are confident we will be one of the leading providers of point-of-use laboratory water systems in the near future," said Harris.

Pall puts the global laboratory water systems and consumables market at $250 million, growing at about 8% annually.
