Did you know that we can now detect cancer using a drop of pure water? And that water quality can influence the development of novel medicines? We at ELGA LabWater have been amazed to discover just how important pure water is in clinical diagnostics.
The food we need to survive mainly comes from the agricultural production of crops and livestock. Reliable freshwater supplies are essential for growing this food, especially in arid regions. This demand will only continue to increase as the world’s population rises. However, water use in agriculture can be wasteful and so supplies are under threat.
