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 deep knowledge and understanding of water enables us to do so through a combination of innovative water filtration solutions for healthcare and commercial markets, with timely and relevant educational materials. This comprehensive approach offers widespread opportunity to understand and address potential challenges to water safety.

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

Our Technology

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

Whether for healthcare or commercial applications, our water filtration products help make water better, and safer.

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 water filtration solutions.

Our Business Composition

The Nephros business is comprised of two segments: water filtration and Specialty Renal Products, a majority-owned subsidiary of Nephros.

Water Filtration

Water filtration technology is our core business. We have a robust line-up of solutions that serve both healthcare and commercial markets.

In the healthcare space, we offer FDA 510(k)-cleared water filters for infection control, leveraged most often within hospitals and healthcare facilities, as well as for a wide range of dialysis machines.

Our commercial offerings support food service and beverage machines within hospitality, quick service restaurants, and convenience stores, to name just a few applications. In 2019, Nephros acquired Biocon 1, LLC and its affiliate Aether Water Systems, LLC (together, “Biocon”), as a bolster to our commercial water filtration lineup.

Specialty Renal Products

Specialty Renal Products (SRP) is a development-stage company focused on the advancement of hemodiafiltration (HDF) technology for patients with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). SRP is committed to commercializing the second-generation Nephros HDF Assist Module, a device which recently received FDA 510(k) clearance to enable hemodialysis machines to also provide hemodiafiltration therapy.
