Water in CO2 incubators and water baths offers ideal conditions for microbial contamination. WaterShield™ is a water additive with disinfecting properties that prevents microbial growth in these reservoirs.


Reliable protection from microbial contamination & easy handling without pipetting.

  • Broad Antimicrobial Activity

    WaterShield™ is active against most bacteria, mycoplasma, protozoa, algae, fungi and yeast.

  • Wide Range of Applications

    WaterShield™ can also be used in regular water/heating baths including water pans of CO2 incubators and is compatible with common laboratory surfaces, e.g. tin plated iron, chrome, nickel steel, high grade steel and copper.

  • No Cell Toxicity

    The water additive contains quaternary ammonium compounds and surfactants as disinfecting and cleaning ingredients, but no aldehydes, phenols, alcohols or azides. The reagents do not evaporate. All ingredients are safe and do not cause any irritating effects to the skin when used at the recommended concentration. No unpleasant odor noticeable.
