Why Medical Device Manufacturers Need to Care About Water Purity

Water goes into the creation, preparation, and final cleaning of just about every product, including medical devices. Medical device manufacturers need to be especially careful about their assembly process, because their equipment is likely to interact with patients who may have a compromised immune system. Any impurities used in the water during the manufacture process could ultimately represent a risk to weakened patients down the line.

That is why it is crucial for medical device manufacturers to use pure water in all aspects of the product’s assembly and final cleaning before shipment. Don’t just rely on a water purifier (which may expire or be installed incorrectly). Instead, invest in the Pathfinder HPT-12 Resistivity Transmitter to actively monitor your water filtration system to ensure that there are no impurities in the water.

Using a Pathfinder HPT-12 Resistivity Transmitter can help lower your liability and help you keep patients safer when they interact with your equipment.
