Newly designed instrument for desalination: Comparison with dialysis bag



  All desalination methods which are currently used have limitations. A newly designed instrument by Zare A.M. was tested and compared with currently used method in Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute(RVSRI). Samples of anti snake venom for desalination was provided by department of anti-serum, RVSRI. Parameters included in this study were time and water consumption during desalination process. PH, conductivity, Total protein, potency and dry weight of samples. Results reveals that complete desalination process by our newly designed instrument consumes only 4.30 hours and 80 litters of purified water as compared to currently used method of dialysis bag with average of 120 hours of time and 1920 litters of purified water(P
