Ensuring access to high-quality ultrapure water across the medical and life science industries

Medical water is key ingredient, raw material, or solvent in the development, formulation, and manufacturing of many pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products. It may be present as an excipient, employed during synthesis, used in the laboratory or even a key component of a dialysis systems.  Heat sanitized reverse osmosis elements eliminate impurities providing the right level of sterility and clarity required by each application from water for injection to home dialysis. 

DuPont Water Solutions is globally recognized for its water-separation and purification solutions with an unsurpassed reputation for consistent, reliable, and long-lasting performance. Our continuous investment in manufacturing excellence and innovation combined with DuPont’s global R&D capabilities and expertise allow us to address specific conditions and requirements of the medical water industry.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Eliminating impurities that impact water quality and human health

From diagnostic test kits to water for injection applications, we enable greater access to healthcare around the world.

The quality of life for patients with chronic kidney disease depends heavily on regular dialysis. With hospitals around the world under a massive burden, the safe, reliable and simple treatment of water for dialysis is critical to be able to offer this life sustaining service. Modern Filmtec™ heat sanitizable reverse osmosis (HSRO) elements used in dialysis systems offer relief. Not only do our advanced membrane technologies used in these elements create an effective barrier for contaminants, but they are efficient, easy to use and maintain, and compact enough even to move dialysis systems to the patient’s home.

In fact, as microbiological quality standards for dialysis water become more stringent, Filmtec™ HSRO elements may offer the best solution for both centralized and portable units. Our FilmTec™ elements are among the most advanced available, providing a reliable barrier and a long service-life thanks to their durability and heat resistance. They have been well proven in a myriad of applications such as drinking water, water for food & beverages and ultrapure water for industries like semiconductor manufacture.

Injections are among the most common health care procedures throughout the world.  With an upsurge in the number of chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer, the need for more convenient drug delivery systems for unit dose medication has grown, especially as biologics are increasingly becoming the driving forces of the pharmaceutical industry.  Across the life sciences, wellness today is about convenient drug delivery and enabling drugs that are tailored specifically for the disease mechanism.  FilmTec™ heat sanitizable reverse osmosis (HSRO) elements have been developed through industry-leading research to address the very specific conditions and requirements needed for success in water for injection purification systems. 

With more than 30 years of experience in water treatment and a proven track record of performance and reliability, DuPont Water Solutions Filmtec™ HSRO elements enable purification systems to create ultrapure high quality water that can be manufactured in accordance with all recognized international pharmacopoeias.  Our comprehensive product line, technical expertise, and global reach enable optimized solutions that provide the assurances needed when producing ultrapure water with highly controlled endotoxin content or for use as excipients in the production of sterile products.

Laboratories must follow stringent manufacturing practices when it comes to a majority of the research and development work for the life sciences industries.   Bioprocessing, in vitro fertilization, tissue and cell cultures work, as well as DNA research, all require ultrapure water which needs to be both biologically pure and free of trace metals and dissolved organics.  FilmTec™ heat sanitizable reverse osmosis (HSRO) elements have been developed through industry-leading research to meet special application requirements such as ultrapure water for research and academic institutes as well as biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical companies. 

FilmTec™ HSRO elements deliver outstanding quality water and have the added capability to withstand sanitization with hot water, eliminating the need for chemical sanitizers. FilmTec™ HSRO elements, manufactured on advanced automated equipment, have the highest active membrane area allowing system designs with both lower operating flux and with cost savings from fewer membrane elements. The full-fit configuration minimizes stagnant areas and is optimal for applications requiring a sanitary design.
