Millipore RiOs Essential 5 lock out tags and anti-competitive.


Date : 11/29/2018

Question

Amy I have a Millipore RiOs Essential 5 system that requires a Progard PreTreatment Pack MilliQ Integral Cat PROGT0S2 This unit was purchased from Millipore in 2016 The comparable item listed on your system says For systems made 2012 or earlier What do you have that works with our system


Answer

Unfortunately Millipore put in radio tags in the filters to force you to buy them from them. They also greatly raised the price on the filter when they did since there was no competition. You are stuck with them. In the long run, a new system that doesn't have radio tage would save you a lot of money. They got into trouble over it in Europe and we are just waiting for the same to happen here so we can offer our alternatives.
