I would definitely recommend to any lab doing BOD analysis.
Application Area: Water Treatment
"The Millipore Milli-Q Direct 8 was purchased to replace the Barnstead still that was used to make water for BOD analysis. Due to the amount of deionized water that was wasted during the distillation process, we were constantly changing out the carbon filters and cartridges on the DI system. This was extremely costly. The Milli-Q Direct 8 converts our tap water into Type I water with no water wasted. To date, there has been no problem with the BOD testing and we have experienced significant monetary savings. "

Great product, but after sale support is lacking.
Application Area:Water purification
"I think it is a good system. My main gripe is that when we were looking at systems we got a lot of attention. The sales rep came and showed us systems installed in other locations and talked about our many options. We finally decided on a system and went forward. We ended up getting some things we really didn't want or need. the rep said he would take it back and give us credit, but we never saw him again. They send an email every year reminding me to replace the filters. This can be good, and bad. Yes, we need to replace the filters every year, but it seems like the reminders are coming more like every nine months. It appears that they are just trying to sell products. Trying to find information on maintenance is ...... difficult. The manual is pretty good at outlining needed maintenance steps, but if it is not in there it is going to be hard to get the information. The Millipore web site is terrible. If you call or email, however, they are pretty helpful."

"We have only had the system a short time and it is one of three systems throughout the lab. It is very easy to use and maintain and seems to be perfect for our lab needs."
