Advancing Aquatic Research with the Aqueo Aquatic Wash System Chemistries

In aquatic research, cleanliness is critical, but conventional cage wash chemistries may pose a risk to the aquatic models, and the research outcomes, as they can leave residues that affect the health, development, and phenotypic expression of the aquatic organisms.

To address this challenge, we’ve developed the Aqueo Aquatic Cage Wash System, in partnership with leading aquatics caging providers. This aquatic tank cleaning system consists of three chemistries – Aqueo Alkaline, Aqueo OX, and Aqueo Acid-C – All specifically formulated to meet the needs of aquatic research.

These chemistries are effective in removing built up soils, biofilm, and organic matter from a variety of aquaculture caging, such as tanks, aquaculture tanks, net pens, sea cages, and submerged cages, all without using surfactants that may leave harmful residues. The Aqueo chemistries are also free from additives that may harm your animal models’ physiology, behavior, or immune response.

By using Quip Labs Aqueo Aquatic Cage Wash System Chemistries, you can ensure the cleanliness and quality of your aquaculture cages, and the well-being and reliability of your aquatic models.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Aqueo Aquatic Wash System?

Creating the perfect aquatic tank cleaning chemistries requires more than just managing bioload. The Aqueo Aquatic Wash System is a set of chemistries developed by Quip Labs to clean and sanitize aquatic caging and tanks without leaving behind harmful residues that can harm aquatics models. It consists of three products: Aqueo Alkaline, Aqueo OX, and Aqueo Acid-C.

What are the benefits of using the Aqueo Aquatic Wash System?

The Aqueo Aquatic Wash System offers several benefits for aquatic research, such as:

  • It removes algae, biofilm, organic residues, and stains from aquatic caging without leaving harmful residues.
  • It does not leave toxic residues that aquatic organisms can come into contact with, and does not contain phosphates, active chlorine, or surfactants.
  • It works with leading aquatics caging to ensure optimal cleaning results and compatibility.
  • It contributes to the well-being of aquatic models and the reliability of aquatic research.

How do I use the Aqueo Aquatic Wash System?

The Aqueo Aquatic Wash System is easy to use makes cleaning aquatics caging similar to cleaning any other vivarium caging.

The wash cycle will consist of the following:

  • Aqueo Alkaline – This removes algae, biofilm, and organic residues. Aqueo Alkaline is a Potassium-Hydroxide based cleaner that can be used without manual scrubbing or pre-treatment.
  • Aqueo OX – This will be dosed next, and helps remove tough, stuck-on soils and stains. Aqueo OX is a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner that can also reduce microbial load and break down organic matter.
  • Aqueo Acid-C – Finally we dose the acid neutralizer to the aquatic caging to neutralize any remaining Aqueo Alkaline. Aqueo Acid-C is a Citric-acid based cleaner that can also prevent mineral deposits and corrosion.

Aqueo | Alkaline

Aqueo Alkaline: The Heart of the Aqueo System

The Aqueo System is a comprehensive way to clean your aquatic caging. And at the heart of this system is Aqueo Alkaline, a powerful and effective detergent that is specially designed for aquatic housing.

Aqueo Alkaline is a Potassium-Hydroxide based cleaner that can remove algae and biofilm from your aquatic caging without the need for manual scrubbing or pre-treatment. It is also free of phosphates and active chlorine, which can harm aquatic life.

Aqueo Alkaline not only removes organic residues on animal housing, but also ensures that your aquatic models are safe and healthy. It is non-toxic to aquatic organisms and can be easily neutralized with our Aqueo Acid Chemistry.

• Free of phosphates and active chlorine
• Removes organic residues on animal housing
• Non-toxic to aquatic organisms
• Can be neutralized easily with our Aqueo Acid Chemistry

Aqueo | OX

Aqueo OX: The Oxidizer of the Aqueo System

The Aqueo System is a comprehensive way to clean your aquatic caging. And one of the key components of this system is Aqueo OX, an oxidizer that is specially designed for aquatic caging.

Aqueo OX is a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner that can:

  • • Assist Aqueo Alkaline and acid by breaking down organic matter and reducing microbial load
  • • Remove tough, stuck-on soils and stains from your aquatic caging
  • • Work with our three-part Aqueo Aquatic Wash system for optimal cleaning results

It is also safe and extremely effective, as hydrogen peroxide is non-toxic to aquatic organisms and breaks down into water and oxygen.

Aqueo | Acid-C

Aqueo Acid-C: The Neutralizer of the Aqueo System

The final component of The Aqueo System is Aqueo Acid-C, an acidic cleaner and neutralizer that is specially designed for aquatic caging. This citric acid based cleaner provides the pH balance needed to neutralize Aqueo Alkaline, while also helping to remove hard water spots and mineral buildup.

Aqueo Acid-C is a Citric-acid based cleaner that can:

  • • Neutralize Aqueo Alkaline
  • • Rinse off any remaining residues or soils from your aquatic caging
  • • Work with our three-part Aqueo Aquatic Wash system for optimal cleaning results

It is also free of phosphates and active chlorine, which can harm aquatic life.
