The water in an incubator or water bath is a major source of cell culture contamination, particularly with respect to mycoplasma contaminations, since
mycoplasmas can survive in pure water.
Aquaguard, a non-volatile stabilizer, is extremely effective at maintaining the
water quality in the CO2 incubator or in ordinary water baths. In addition, it does
not cause damage to the stainless steel of the incubator or any plastic interior
and it does not cause any skin irritation when used as recommended.
