While distilled water and deionized water
are fairly common, reagent water is a different kettle of fish. Those types of water may be considered “pure,” but pure is not good enough for reagent water—reagent water must be ultrapure. (Scroll down to learn more about reagent water requirements.)
In most clinical laboratories, reagent water is one the most widely used solvents, if not the
most widely used. But what are the scientific requirements of “reagent water”? And how does reagent water react with other chemicals and compounds found in research and laboratory settings?
NuGenTec offers SDS (safety data sheet) and MSDS (material safety data sheet) downloads to help you keep track of the applicable chemical, reactivity, and safety standards for reagent water.
