MEDICA® Systems

MEDICA® Systems are designed to provide water to clinical analyzers specified to Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water (CLRW) standard (formally Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute Type 1).

​We understand it is critical for clinical analyzers to receive a constant and reliable supply of compliant water to attain accurate and reproducible diagnostic test results. Water quality that is below accepted standards affects the chemistry of the tests and the general operation of the analyzer. This reduces the accuracy of the results and increases calibration times and reagent costs.

Evoqua is proud to partner with ELGA Labwater who has combined experience gained from 75 years of innovating water purification technologies and working in partnership with major clinical diagnostics companies, to offer the unrivaled MEDICA range of products.

These reliable, compact water purification systems with in-built wrap-around reservoirs occupy a minimal amount of precious lab space. Constructed from the highest quality components, the MEDICA system ensures bacterial control and optimal purity, as well as an uninterrupted workflow. Built-in technology results in predictable, low consumable and running costs with the highest water quality. All MEDICA units have a bypass loop which continues to provide compliant water to the analyzer in emergency situations.

 Matching Your System to the Right Clinical Analyzer

 MEDICA Systems are designed to provide water to clinical analyzers specified to Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water (CLRW) standard (formally Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute Type 1). Whether you have access to tap or partially purified water, or need to feed analyzers on a small or large scale, Evoqua has the system for you.

To help you choose the system that is most suited to your clinical analyzer needs, we have developed the MEDICA product finder table below. Furthermore, our team of technical and application specialists are always available to answer any questions, as well as provide friendly, expert advice in choosing the most suitable water purification systems. 

​Maximum water rate
Water quality
​Maximum flow rate​1.8 liters/min​4 liters/min​21 liters/min
​Typical applications​Single clinical analyzers​Single or multiple clinical analyzers, feed loop up to 16m​Multiple clinical analyzers, automated track, loop up to 100m

 Stages of Clinical Analyzer Process

​Water is vital to many different stages of the clinical analyzer process. Purified water is used as a zero/baseline standard in clinical chemistry tests and if the levels of certain ions (e.g. Ca2+, Mg2+, PO3-, HCO- ) are not optimal then this will affect the calibration stability and reduce assay sensitivity. Likewise, bacterialby-products, most notably alkaline phosphatase, can interfere with enzyme-based immunoassays.


 Service and Support

Every MEDICA system comes complete with one extra feature –first class service and support wherever you are North America.

Evoqua has installed thousands of systems, and our service engineers will apply their expertise to the installation and maintenance of your water purification systems to insure optimal performance. Furthermore, for complete peace of mind, your MEDICA system is provided with unparalleled service support. This means maximum uptime for the clinical analyzer system, which must be operational every day of the year.

Our Evoqua team works together with project managers, installation engineers, facilities managers, and clinical scientists to provide help and expertise at all stages.

Prior to installation we will perform a site survey and assess a wide range of parameters that include:

  • Specific analyzer applications
  • Assessment of feedwater quality
  • Required range of water qualities
  • Volume of water needed (i.e. peak demand and normal usage per day)
  • Space availability
  • Budget

After our site survey we will be able to recommend the best MEDICA product for your clinical analyzer application. In addition to providing you with a cost for purchase, we will provide the cost of ownership throughout the life of the product, giving you a predictable budget. All of the MEDICA products are produced as modular units, giving faster installation times, helping to reduce costs. After commissioning and installation, our ongoing service and support will ensure that your systems are running optimally.
