The development of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry in
last years in Cuba has increased the consumption of laboratory
animals free from pathogenic germs, which are bred in barrier
conditions and require the supply of very high microbiological
quality water. This paper present the use of ozone water treatment
through an automated system. It was designed, manufactured by
Ozone Research Center and put on to work in Biotechnology and
Genetic Engineering Center. The results obtained show the
efficiency of ozone to achieve this aim and the economical
advantages it has in comparison with the thermal treatment.
