SUEZ and AquiSense Technologies have entered a partnership providing SUEZ with AquiSense’s patented ultraviolet light emitting diode (UV-C LED) Water Treatment Technology for water disinfection, directly at the point of use in critical laboratory applications.
AquiSense and SUEZ have been engaged in close co-operation for over a year in a detailed joint development effort to deliver an advanced laboratory water purification unit equipped with advanced UV-C LED technology. The new laboratory product offers a high-level microbial disinfection barrier directly at the point of use. Unlike competing units, where pathogens can enter the upstream pipeline contaminating the system and future samples, the new UV LED disinfection acts as a barrier preventing contamination from entering the water purification system as a whole.
SUEZ is globally recognized as a leader in providing advanced technology for purified water. With solutions available across five continents, an extensive distribution network and outstanding customer support, SUEZ provides the world with safe and clean solutions.
“This partnership signifies an adaptation of the UV LED technology in the more critical fields of healthcare and research,” said Thomas Arnold, AquiSense European Sales Director. “We are excited about this new partnership and we are happy to provide the most advanced UV LED disinfection solutions to our partners at SUEZ,” concluded Mr. Arnold.
“The new system developed by SUEZ eliminates recontamination problems by using LED lamps located within the dispense head, at the point of use. This is the first time such technology has been used in this way and brings a number of further important benefits,” said John Higgs, Innovation Engineer at SUEZ.
