Webinar to focus on combating retrograde contamination in POU filters
Effective ways to combat retrograde contamination in point-of-use filters will be the subject of the first webinar of 2021 to be held in association with Health Estate Journal, presented by three water hygiene specialists from Aqua free Solution.
The title of the webinar, taking place at 11.00 am on 15 March – and which we invite you to join (attendance is free) – will be ‘Point of use filters – Retrograde contamination; ways of tackling it and good filter hygiene practice’. The presentation, followed by a ‘Q&A’ session, will be delivered by Mark Aristidou, Sales and Operations Director, Dr Florian Dibbern, Managing Director, and Holger Eggert, Technical Product Development Manager, at Aqua free Solution.

- Antibacterial surfaces in such filters – their purpose, areas of application, and how they work;
