What Makes Distilled Water Ideal For Microbiology Labs
Let’s look at how this type of purified water is made. Distilled water has had many of its impurities removed through the process of distillation. This involves the boiling of water and then condensing the steam into a clean food grade container. By doing this, all the impurities generally found in tap are completely removed, leaving you with a purer form of H20.
In both chemical and biological laboratories distilled water is used in applications as it eliminates the impurities found in tap water influencing the result.
Distilled water has many common uses as well, including topping up lead acid batteries in cars and trucks. It can also be used in automotive cooling systems, model steam engine boilers and household aquariums. You can find out more uses for distilled water by heading over to our blog here.
