Mouse Water - Purified Water - 5 Gallons
Category/Type: Purified Water
Description: Acidified Water for Lab Mice
Applications: Use to provide water for lab mice. Low pH water is bactericidal against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (an opportunistic pathogen common in water and other gram-negative bacteria.) Acidification is used to prevent the spread of bacterial disease among laboratory animals through drinking water.
Findings: Does the pH of drinking water affect immunosuppression in mice?
The pH of drinking water remains stable for periods of up to 7 days. The only significant changes produced in both immunosuppressed and normal mice with both anions were declines in weight gain and water consumption when the drinking water was acidified to a pH of 2.0. Some of the changes were greater in the immunosuppressed animals.
Production: We start with USP Purified Water. Minerals are added to buffer the water. The water is ozinated prior to packaging.
Quality: This water is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility, located locally. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards
