Purified Water/Water for Injection from BWT is also used in medicinal applications, including, for example, insulin for diabetics, the manufacture of cardiac pacemakers or prostheses and artificial joints in the medical technology sector and life-saving infusions. Purity and safety have the highest priority, not only in hospitals and laboratories, but also in homeopathic products, where Purified Water/Water for Injection contributes to wellbeing and health.

Purified Water/Water for Injection is an essential element in all these areas; it is both a solvent and carrier medium in the end-product and is also required for cleaning and rinsing packaging and production systems. Varying degrees of purity therefore exist: Purified Water (or aqua purificata) and Water for Injections (or aqua ad iniectabilia). Strict regulations and guidelines guarantee water safety for the end user.
