Our Mission

Better water for life is the ultimate vision driving Nephros and the work that we do. We seek to improve the relationship between people and water, that mutual reliance between life and resource, which is so fundamental to each of us, and so deeply affected by availability and safety. 

In service of these goals, our mission is to provide leading, accessible technology and resources for advancing water quality. Our innovative filtration and pathogen detection solutions serve both the healthcare and commercial markets, demonstrating our commitment to producing clean, safe water to people worldwide.

In hospitals, acute care, and senior living facilities; hotels, restaurants, and convenience stores, our technologies make water better.

Our Technology

Our leading water filtration and testing science, education, and outstanding customer support represent a comprehensive, integrated approach to water safety. We excel at identifying and retaining harmful contaminants; and bringing awareness to the risks, regulatory guidance, and opportunities for improvement as they pertain to water quality.

We are most known for our FDA-cleared infection control water filters, which effectively retain viruses, bacteria, and endotoxins with 0.005 micron / 5nm pore-size, hollow-fiber technology. Our exceptional water filtration technology is born from years of service in the field of dialysis, arguably the gold standard of all filtration.

Our History

Nephros was founded in 1997 with a focus on providing solutions for the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) marketplace. ESRD is a chronic and incurable illness with limited treatment options. Outside of kidney transplants, the remaining alternative is Renal Replacement Therapy involving rigorous and systematic filtering of the blood. Patients facing ESRD rely heavily on filtration, and its efficacy is critical to survival. 

The expertise we have gained having started our business in the dialysis market has qualified us to serve as a trusted resource in water filtration for healthcare and commercial facilities. To this day, we continue to support dialysis patients with effective filters for dialysis water, leveraging the same hollow-fiber technology driving our infection control filtration solutions.
