Client`s challenge

Net-Foodlab provides a wide variety of testing methods. They include rapid hygiene tests, like luminometry, as well as traditional laboratory tests for more detailed examination. Types of water for the lab fall into several categories, ranging from feed water to ultrapure. That is why the consistent production of high-quality water serves multiple purposes.

Key problems

To stay a fully trusted quality management partner for their clients, Net-Foodlab, in turn, relies on its trustworthy equipment. The accuracy of analysis costs the most in this business, and compromise is not worth the risk of penalties and reputation loss.

Particular qualities of the water, which serves the purposes of laboratory testing, is strictly regulated. It should meet very particular characteristics in terms of the elements and residuals it contains. Primary grade laboratory water type requires carbon and reverse osmosis (RO) filtration, while higher types (general and ultrapure) use a combination of RO, ultrafiltration and other technologies. The higher the water purity grade, the more techniques should be used.
