The scientific laboratories at the Getty Conservation Institute uses
deionized water for all applications, except for the Analytical
Chemistry Section.  When they need purer grades of water, it's purchased
as HPLC Grade, by the case in bottles at a reasonable cost. It is very
unlikely that a conservation treatment lab will ever be able to justify
the ability to produce its own ultrapure water.
